HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – Students at William Davies Middle School are getting their hands dirty and loving it.

Kids get to dig in for hands-on learning in the school’s organic garden while applying lessons learned in the classroom to real-world examples right outside their door. A native plant garden and koi pond at the front entrance attracts native wildlife such as birds, butterflies and other insects. The garden also attracts families in the community as students invite their younger siblings and parents to see what they have created.

Davies is part of a growing network of schools across the country that are committed to sustainability and the importance of environmental and outdoor learning.
