Unity students serve as earth stewards all year and include gardening as part of their curriculum. From preschool and up, students till the soil, plant the seeds and cultivate their herb and flower gardens with assistance from teachers and parents. This teaches interest in gardening among the children and incorporates Unity’s earth-friendly approach, keeping with the Montessori program.
