One of the many activities at the Campus Community School Spring Carnival is the opportunity for you and your children to construct a biodegradable pot and plant a flower or veggie for Mom in celebration of Mother's Day.
The caretaker of the Cougar Paws Community Garden is Campus Community School Facility Manager Shawn Beecher. Established in 2011 by the CCHS garden club, the garden has expanded every year and is now worked by students in every grade level along with parent volunteers.
Some of our harvest is donated to Campus families and also finds its way into the surrounding community through our families. A portion of the summer harvest is picked and served along with lunch by our students in the STEAM program who help maintain the garden during the summer months.
This season we are planting string beans, onions, summer squash, pattypan squash, spaghetti squash, sugar snap peas, sunflowers, tomatoes, peppers, various herbs, watermelon, strawberries and raspberries.
Our Brahma hens are now 1 year old and have started laying. We hatch chicks in 1st grade every year and the students get to see the birds life cycle, egg to egg. Fresh, free range "Cougar Eggs" are available through the office for a small donation that helps support these programs.
