Lincoln Garden, located at Lincoln Elementary School in South Corvallis, is a gathering place for children and families to learn the connection between a healthy environment and a healthy lifestyle while growing, preparing, and enjoying fresh produce. During the school day, Lincoln Garden is an outdoor classroom for Lincoln Elementary students. Healthy Youth Program garden educators provide garden-based activities connected to state standards that enrich curricula. After school, Lincoln Elementary students participate in Lincoln Garden Club, where they explore the joy of gardening and taste its rewards. Volunteers from OSU, Lincoln parents, and the community help to maintain Lincoln Garden through monthly work parties (Tend, Mend, and Mingle/Cultivamos y Charlamos en el Jardín), and during the summer the garden is cared for through our High School Summer Internship program.
