The Horticulture Program provides our students the opportunity to contribute to High Mowing’s own gardens.
Brad Miller, horticulture teacher, guides students in the daily activities involved in a sustainably designed food-shed. An emphasis is placed on developing responsive capacities in the garden and within a community. The students also learn to appreciate the aesthetic beauty of a biologically diverse ecosystem.
In Horticulture the students learn to listen and observe with the heart. When they see the results of their labor in the gardens, they come to understand what effect their care and devotion can have on the earth, their neighbor, and themselves.
