Gathering Garden at Sacajawea Elementary School, April 2024

Garden Work Parties

Thank you so much to all the Sacajawea families who've helped with the Outdoor Learning Garden this Spring! Donations of metal garden beds, wood rounds, and labor from Sacajawea families and community members helped to make big progress in setting up the garden. We also received a generous donation of soil from our local nursery, Yard 'N Garden Land, for our garden beds! And Shur-Way Building Materials donated delivery costs for lumber (twice)! Thank you so much to all!

November 2023

The groundbreaking for this project took place in November 2023. We are so grateful for the great job that Vulcan Construction did, building the foundation for our new Outdoor Learning Garden. They also graciously donated a portion of the labor costs toward this project. 

Outdoor Learning Garden Design

Jane Tesner Kleiner, landscape architect, of nature + play designs created the design for our new Outdoor Learning Garden. Given our school's connection to Sacajawea, the garden design was inspired by the longhouses used by many indigenous groups.  

The O.G.! That is, Original Garden

Did you know that Sacajawea has a beautiful Native plant garden on the south side of the school? It features many Pacific NW native plants, including Bleeding Heart, ferns, flowering currant, and Oregon grape.
