"To create an outdoor learning legacy, inspiring healthy gardeners, mindful explorers and environmental stewards..."


to all who came, donated and celebrated our BUILD-A-GARDEN DAY!

It was a huge success and showed true meaning to the phrase "many hands make light work"

Growing Together

How the Kidston Garden began, and our plans for the future...


We believe that children learn in a variety of ways and environments.  Offering an outdoor space where students can explore with their senses and cultivate confidence through growing gardens and discovery has been a long dream at Kidston Elementary. 

That dream came to life in 2015, with the implementation of 10 raised garden beds.  By 2016, the request for more garden space had grown along with a vision to develop an area that would meet the combined wishes of Kidston students and teachers consisting of biodiverse and veggie gardens, an outdoor classroom and adventure forest...an outdoor learning legacy.  


We are so very excited to share our plans to meet this need and introduce KIDSTON DISCOVERY GARDENS.  Fundraising has begun and we are hopeful to see this come to life April 28th 2018!!

Update:  Kidston Discovery Gardens Phase 1 is officially in place and thriving!!!  All the 16 beds are blooming thanks to the students, teachers and Garden to Plate program!  Phase 2 coming soon.
