What our students have to say:




The Garden is one of my favorite places on the school campus. We learn all about the different kinds of plants and how to make them grow.We also cook things, too.We make cornmeal pancakes, pesto, salads, and much, much more. Our Garden is also called the Outdoor Learning Center. Jack A

 

 

In our Outdoor Learning Center, classes go to our Garden and learn about what’s outdoors. For example, we learn about butterflies, how to cook different foods by growing them instead of just buying them at the store, different flowers and the gifts and magical powers they have.
Calendula flowers--help to heal your skin when you have small scrapes and cuts
Chickweed--helps particularly with skin itchiness
Plantain--particularly good for drawing out stingers and splinters
Lavender--an anti-inflammatory that helps bring down swelling
Mallow--this plant, related to the marshmallow plant that marshmallows were once made of, is moisturizing and soothing to the skin
Mint--cooling to your skin, so it can be put on inflamed itchy spots
Ceonothus--this California native plant is specifically for helping to decrease the itching of poison oak. It was also used by the Native Americans of this area for soap and to stun fish!
Mugwort--specific for treating poison oak, too, and it’s magical use is that if you sleep with a leaf under your pillow, you will dream a true dream about your future! Ashley C

 

The outdoor learning program at Bay Farm is one of the things about this school is something nobody forgets. When I did garden classes, we would help out to keep our school gardens in shape. Often times, we would plant vegetables or fruits that we cook and eat when they had grown. That was my favorite part of garden class. The food we made! We would make things like Mediterranean pesto, or acorn pancakes, and I had a hard time believing we made such good food! Another amazing part of this class were the garden teachers. They are always so kind and helpful, and sometimes they let the kids go into the butterfly garden to try some of the nectar from the edible flowers. I can still remember it now!


At Bay Farm School, we have a beautiful garden planted by our very own students! Every week, each class goes to Garden Class. Sometimes, we cook delicious, organic vegetables from our very own Garden, while other times we plant, weed, and clean the Garden. Although we all like all of the food we cook, almost everybody’s favorite is our pesto. Our Garden teachers have created a delicious pesto recipe that nobody ever gets tired of! Garden is a huge part of Bay Farm School! Sydney C

 

Garden is another one of my favorite periods! Garden is when we have a half hour weekly to learn about the natural world.We get to cook,we pull weeds out of the ground. I love Garden because we also get to get a little dirty. I really love Bayfarm’s Garden and you will love it too! Amira

 

At Bay Farm we have a Garden Rotation. During Garden we plant, harvest, and make dishes out of the plants we grow. My favorite dish is pesto and it is very popular among the students at Bay Farm. We sometimes make lip balm and seed balls which are made from clay and seeds mixed together. I can say garden is one of my favorite classes! Jackie M.


Garden helps me learn outside of the classroom. I believe eating right is a very important thing and during Garden I can learn how to make healthy and delicious foods. We also get to plant different vegetables and I can learn what plants are used for healing. I know much more than I would in other schools because of Garden lessons. Morgan K

 
Garden is where we go once a week and learn about the natural world. Each quad has their own Garden site bigger or smaller in size. We plant seeds then watch and learn how plants grow. We eat and cook what we have planted and have a great time.

 


Garden is twice a week. Garden is fun because we do fun things like plant things. I like to eat  things grown in our Garden. We make things and sometimes eat the food we harvest from our Garden. Also we help in the Garden like pulling out weeds. I really like gardening!! You should like Garden if you like to get a little dirty. I really think you should come to Bay Farm’s Garden and take a look. Natalie D

The Outdoor Learning Program is one of my favorite activities. We get to do all kinds of things such as pulling weed contests and planting flowers. My favorite thing to do in the outdoor learning program is cooking. We cook all sorts of things. After we got to eat it which was the best part.
