Lincoln School Garden


In September 2012, the Healthy Youth Program took on the role of managing the well- established and much loved Lincoln School Garden, in South Corvallis. Established more than 15 years ago with help from the Corvallis Environmental Center, the Lincoln School Garden provides enrichment programs and activities to all grade levels (K-5) at Lincoln Elementary School, and is used as an educational tool available to classes during the school day.

In March 2013, the Lincoln Garden was expanded to include the Family Sharing Garden, which will provide a space to teach families in South Corvallis how to sustainably grow fruits and vegetables, the important nutritional value of fresh fruits and vegetables, and to increase affordable access to these foods. With the expansion, students will have access to almost double the garden space during the school day!

Rebecca Fallihee, a garden educator at the Healthy Youth Program, is working with Lincoln teachers and students to provide science-based garden education to Lincoln students during the school day. Rebecca is also collaborating with OSU Extension’s Nutrition Education Program at Lincoln School to include garden-related learning within the nutrition curriculum. Maintenance of the garden is tackled by Dan Lovejoy, an OSU Horticulture student and garden assistant at the Healthy Youth Program, along with the help of the students at Lincoln Elementary School, Rebecca, and Amoreena Guerrero, a garden educator in the Family Sharing Garden.
