School Gardens

scarecrowsherb garden plants


Edible crops (and scarecrows) are planted in the Science garden boxes. The Herbsense and California Native Plant gardens in the front of the school double as landscape planting and outdoor classroom areas where children may work. Weekly garden lessons and supplies are provided to interested classes.

Waste Reduction

recycling bins and signsvolunteer signups

North Davis is part of the ALL compost program and piloted a student “Green Service Corps” volunteer program to help with lunch time recycling in 2012-13. All students in grades 4-6 were asked to form teams and volunteer to help with waste and recycling for one week of the school year.  The students and teachers rose to the challenge and did a great job helping out during lunch!


The Terracycle Connection

North Davis has been collecting juice pouches and other items for upcycling with Terracycle for many years. The school has made $500 and recycled over 27,000 pouches! See the Terracycle flyer.
