The Garden at Oswegatchie School is a sustainable organic garden where children get a hands on experience learning where their food comes from while developing an appreciation and respect for nature. The Garden will be a learning center to teach gardening as well as incorporating art, music, literature, math and science. It is a place where children are encouraged to join in and participate in the process of creating, developing and maintaining the garden!

New additions to the garden!

We have started adding some furniture to the garden so there will be seating and work areas when we run the garden club and also so people can sit and enjoy the gardens while visiting. We thought it would be nice to incorporate child size tables and chairs so the children would be comfortable.

This is the first of four child size picnic tables that will be going into the garden. The other three tables will be assembled by volunteers during one of our garden work parties - date to be announced soon. We will also be adding two regular size picnic tables so we can have ample seating when we do garden picnics or harvest parties!

 The tables are 48" long, 24" high and 44" wide and are designed so even a small adult can sit at them.

Thanks to a generous donation from Kyle Caulkins, a student, who donated money to the garden from a fundraiser he did, we will be building 3 more tables!

If anyone wishes to build a child size picnic table for themselves, 
feel free to download the plans here.
