South Hiram Elementary
SchoolGarden
Why a school garden? South Hiram has partnered with community members through a grant, to bring this learning opportunity to our school community. The 2012-2013 school year was our first growing season and it was a huge success. Research supports the use of school gardens as one form of project-based learning. Our students enjoyed every part of this academic and social learning experience. We invite you to visit the school garden at your next visit to South Hiram or visit the slideshow below.

Information alone can never become knowledge, and knowledge never becomes wisdom without some kind of rooting in the good soil of experience.
