How are you incorporating your environmental projects into your school's curriculum?: 
Students are led once a year in a garden maintenance project or curriculum related lesson plan. Outdoor classroom space for reading, art, etc. is an important feature of our garden as well as an emphasis on native Kansas plantings.
One of our grades raises monarch caterpillars in the classroom. Our gardens provide milkweed to feed these caterpillars, monarch watch tags for their release, and of course the wild butterflies for outdoor study in case the indoor butterflies die.
