Organic Garden

The organic garden at RCDS comes to life each spring and is “put to bed” each winter. 

The program, which began several years ago, exposes Pre-K – 6th grade students to the wonder and beauty of nature. Identifying and cultivating plants is everyone’s business in the garden, and linking what we grow to the healthy food served in our dining room is an added benefit of this program.
Using the 20-acre campus as an outdoor classroom, the Organic Garden curriculum and outdoor adventure affords students the opportunity to explore and connect with nature while acquiring gardening skills.
