Our Garden Partner
John B. Connally Culinary Arts Department was selected as a "Green Tables" Initiative school to further the linkages between urban and rural farms and gardens to school, restaurant and kitchen tables in the Les Dames d' Escoffier Austin chapter communities.
School teaching gardens are stimulating, inviting and beautiful spaces that encourage a child's learning across subject matters, and our garden will be a cross curriculum outdoor classroom. This unique outdoor classroom will be designed to provide hands-on, experiential learning opportunities for our students to apply classroom knowledge. This real-world learning can be integrated into all academic subject areas and has been shown to benefit children by boosting academic achievement, nurturing healthy lifestyles, cultivating life skills and promoting environmental stewardship.
