Garden

 

BOTANICAL GARDEN

Casita's front yard is a 10,000 sq. ft. botanical garden.  This garden has recently been designated as a certified wildlife habitat.  Permanent planting areas include California native plants from different climatic zones, as well as, a pond with a variety of fish and crustaceans.  Redwood boxes offer planting opportunities for students as a classroom project.  Redwood benches serve as a place to sit and read or to observe our ecosystem.  There is also an area with benches for small assemblies, class instruction or performances.

 

XERISCAPE DEMONSTRATION GARDEN

Directly in front of K-2 and to the north is a demonstration garden with a variety of native and drought-resistant plants.  This was made possible through a grant from Vista Irrigation District, and is supported by the community and parent volunteers.  This demonstration garden serves as an extension of Casita's STEM curriculum.

 

A BIG THANK YOU  to Kellogg Garden Products, Inc. for their donation of potting soil and fertilizer. 

Many thanks to Sunshine Gardens and Madalaine Charnow of Full Moon Farms for their help with Casita's winter vegetable garden.
