Over the past few weeks, the organic garden located in the center atrium at Calhoun has come alive with fresh produce and blossoms, including Rose of Sharon, tomatoes and corn.

The quiet oasis is a labor of love made possible by students in the Fitness for Life program as well as special education students, who prepare the garden during the school year under the supervision of Fitness for Life teacher James Raucci, special education teacher Beth Johnson and Cheryl Gitlitz, a social worker at Calhoun.

The garden’s produce is cultivated completely organic, without the use of pesticides. During the summer, faculty and staff members harvest and disperse the vegetables until students return to Calhoun in September to take over stewardship. In addition to the bright colors and shady gazebo in the center of the garden, student artwork lends to the aesthetic experience, creating opportunities for students to contribute across the disciplines.

Principal Nicole Hollings said the process of maintaining the garden has a number of educational benefits.

“Students understand how organic farming works,” she said. “They learn about the plant life cycle, healthy eating and the importance of fresh produce.”
