Thomas Page Academy: Cotati

Garden Description: Our garden, which we call our Outdoor Learning Environment, or OLÈ, is a bounty of food for both humans and other animals. Students have loved coming out to work with volunteers to create our garden. With lots and lots of native plants, our hedgerow, pollinator beds, and meadow are attracting many birds, insects, and reptiles. Our many veggie boxes gave us lots of delicious strawberries and tomatoes this past summer, and yielded many of our students’ first tastes of kale, as well as heritage beans, and pumpkins, etc. We are excited to grow our program in the years to come and welcome support from the community!
