About the Skyline Garden
In 2018-2019, our Skyline PTO and teachers  first envisioned a school garden space that would provide more outdoor education opportunities for our students. In the fall of 2019, we partnered with the local organization Common Threads to create a program that engaged our students in learning about food from seed to table – providing curriculum about how to grow food as well as cooking and tasting it together. That fall we also broke ground and built a wonderful garden behind our school!

Our garden has always been a community effort! Skyline students, family, teachers and staff helped build the garden; Cub Scouts built the garden beds; and local businesses donated many of our tools and supplies to make the garden what it is today.

Students and teachers alike loved the gardening and cooking classes – getting a chance to work in the dirt, and preparing and eating many garden-produced foods. The pandemic paused our progress in the garden, but we picked up momentum again when we had our first full spring gardening season in 2022. The season culminated in every class harvesting vegetables from the garden, and then preparing and eating a salad.

We look forward to the 2022-2023 school year, when we will continue to grow both our garden and our garden program by partnering with Common Threads.
