MEREDITH — The Community Garden Club of Meredith along with various other nonprofit organizations and individuals made various donations, as well as attended the Grand Opening Ceremony for the Living Classroom at Inter-Lakes Elementary School.
The Community Garden Club of Meredith was one of the earliest supporters of the Living Classroom. Academic growth and engaging students in their learning is at the heart of the Living Classroom Greenhouse Project. The multi-purpose room was packed as the students, teachers, staff and guests enjoyed the dynamic program created by the students and teachers to celebrate the living classroom.
Dr. Steve Kelly opened the program by outlining the vision, guiding principles, and philosophical foundation supporting the creation of a Living Classroom, an on-site greenhouse that will be used to enhance the educational program offered at Inter-
Lakes Elementary School. "Hands-on" education in the Living Classroom is designed to involve teachers and support a multi-disciplinary curriculum approach while promoting experiential education and a respect for bio-diversity and nature. He stressed that community involvement is essential to the function and sustainability of the Living Classroom. The project created partnerships with local residents and organizations within the community.
