Garden and Nutrition

Welcome to the garden and nutrition corner. With support from the Sage Garden Project, Mason Elementary has built a beautiful garden and fruit orchard filled with 24 raised bed and 17 fruit trees. In addition, the Nutrition Science Lab teaches kids to take the food they have grown and transform it into healthful meals, setting them up with skills for a lifetime of optimal health.
