Lincoln Elementary School is located in Corvallis, OR. The garden is a fenced-in area beside the school playground and is accessible by teachers, garden volunteers and the after-school program. The garden was developed 15+ years ago with the help of the Corvallis Environmental Center and the CEC still plays a role in the garden today. Since the summer of 2008, volunteer and neighbor Cheryl Good has coordinated the planting the growing in the garden.
For the 2011/20112 school year, Ronjon Datta is the leading garden coordinator. He brings not only gardening skills but also an indepth knowledge of soils, compost and science behind them (in other words he is a soil scientist!)
We are always looking for more hands to help in the garden either behind the scenes or as a classroom helper. Classroom garden helpers must submit an application to the school and pass a background check.
