The Southold School Garden is a wonderful example of a teaching tool. Art and science instruction have been developed for students during the school year since 2011. The 4,200 square foot garden provides our teachers and students numerous ways to teach and learn about eating healthy and how things grow.
Salad greens, herbs, and other fresh picked vegetables are made available to the school cafeteria. With a new interest in their vegetables, students competed in a salad dressing recipe contest.
Deb Kimmelman, the Southold Science teacher and a Cornell Master Gardener, launched a Summer Literacy/Garden Camp where learning is expanded and enables garden maintenance. A new program “Bringing Love & Joy to Others” provides flowers for bouquets for local residents who need a little joy in their lives.
