The following is the mission statement of our outdoor learning space. By coming together and supporting each other in every season the VHE Garden Committee works to:
provide an outdoor space where our children can slow down, develop their natural sense of wonder, gain a deeper understanding of the environment and our responsibility to take care of it.
get our children back outside and show them how to stay connected to the natural world.
collaborate and build relationships with each other, teachers, other parents and the Madison community.
support the integration of curriculum and this outdoor learning space.
remind ourselves and our children that this garden, where imagination is encouraged and hard work is valued belongs to them.
