Our first garden area plan!
Nine years ago, one dream was realized as Valley Montessori School students eagerly moved to a brand new school, a stunning hilltop campus situated on six acres of fertile land. Where else can you capture the panoramic view of the entire Livermore Valley, Mount Diablo, Brushy Peak and Mount Hamilton? We’re so fortunate to be surrounded by this open space, a wonderful resource for a child’s experiential learning. It is this incredible land that is about to be transformed by VMS children, teachers and parents into an outdoor classroom.
With enormous enthusiasm, VMS has kicked off yet another dream: our first Edible Schoolyard. VMS faculty has joined with a sizeable group of enthusiastic parents to begin planning a garden that will be planted, cultivated and harvested by our VMS children, all to promote a better understanding of healthy eating and living.
