Life Lab Garden on 2017 Master Garden Tour!

Gateway School’s Life Lab Garden was selected to be on the 2017 Master Garden Tour on September 9, 2017. Student docents taught visitors about biofiltration ponds, rainwater catchment systems, native plant restoration, along with monarch migratory habits and nectar requirements, while touring them through the quarter acre garden.  One of eight gardens on the tour, the Life Lab was the only school garden, and certainly the only one with children demonstrating their knowledge of cultivating sustainable native habitats and the science behind these practices.  See photos here.
