Over the past few years Abingdon's garden has donated hundreds of pounds of produce to AFAC (Arlington Food Assistance Center) teaching the students the importance of helping others who are less fortunate.
The Fairlington Community Association is very supportive of the Outdoor Classroom and donated the funds needed to build the fence around the garden.
Our PTA also is a tremendous support as they participate in "weeding evenings" with their families to help maintain the garden over the summer. Parents are thrilled their children are getting the opportunity to learn about gardening, taste healthy foods they have helped to grow, learn about the interdependency of organisms in our ecosystem and the importance of conservation to help save the Earth.
Please come by and see our students actively engaged in true "hands-on" science as they learn while having fun in the Abingdon Outdoor Classroom.
