In 2007, the Gorham Middle School garden was started to serve students with a hands-on, interdisciplinary, service- based learning project. Through indoor and outdoor activities that are tied to the standards, students learn about sustainability, social issues and citizenship. Whether it is taking soil samples and amending it with manure, composting, or troubleshooting pests organically, students are at the heart of the entire gardening process. They plan, implement and care for vegetables, herbs, flowers, and berries to donate to the Gorham Food Pantry. Project Coordinator: Heather Whitaker.
