Thank you Denison parent volunteers for your dedication to the Denison Global Garden. The Global Garden provides areas for student exploration and study. It has mature trees and shrubs, mixed plantings, perennial butterfly garden, native plants, geologic specimens, and an occupied bird house. There are also versatile classroom plots, a storage shed, compost bins, seating areas, established paths, a sundial designed and built by children, a peace pole, and a plaza.
The Denver Urban Resources Partnership awarded Denison a grant to develop and transform a corner of the school grounds into a community garden. It is designed to increase school-parent-community communication through involvement in the project, teach environmentally sound practices, such as sustainable gardening and composting and use changing beds to focus on gardening practices in different cultures.
Parent volunteers are still needed to complete and maintain the garden so that it may be enjoyed by all. To volunteer, please contact the Denison school office.
Further information about the Habitat is coming soon!
