City Schoolyard Garden at Buford

The central seating area in Buford's garden

Working in partnership with teachers and administrators at Buford Middle School, CSG designed and installed a 4,000 square foot educational garden on the Buford campus in 2010. The garden at Buford serves as an outdoor classroom with curricular ties to Life Science, Physical Education, English, ESOL, Art, and Civics & Economics. Additionally, after-school cooking and gardening clubs provide opportunities for students to learn about healthy food and garden skills outside of their classroom experience. These programs continue through the summer in cooperation with the Boys & Girls Club, Charlottesville Parks & Recreation, and the Greenstone on 5th Summer Program.
