Sustainability has been a focus of WNA for a while now. Our garden has been at the center of that focus. Every class has their own garden bed and are a part of every step of that garden bed. We also have an aquaponics system that the students get to experiment with, learn about, and maintain. Part of sustainability is eating what you are growing and some of the 3rd and 4th graders got a unique first-hand experience. Students not only cultivated herbs from the garden beds but also got to clean and prepare fish from the aquaponics system. It was a fun time had by all even though some of the students were a bit grossed out.
