Orr Community Joins Together to Build a Garden!

On Saturday, March 17, 50 volunteers from Orr Middle School, Green Our Planet, and Wynn Resorts International gathered to build a community garden.  The goal was to create an outdoor learning space for the entire community to participate in.  In just 4 hours, an previously unused portion of the school was transformed into a fully-functioning garden.  In a few months a wide variety of herbs, vegetables and fruits will be available for the entire community to enjoy.  Students will benefit from the integration of STEM activities into the curriculum as well as the opportunity to learn real-world skills.
