The History of Our Garden

In the 2014-15 school year GSES operated at “The Hill”, which is now Hillside ECC, another mission of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd. During our year at “The Hill”, a group of GSES parents developed a beautiful garden and a comprehensive curriculum for the students to enjoy.

It’s not surprising that in the spring of 2021, another group of passionate and dedicated GSES parents worked to create a similar garden program for our Windsor campus. Our garden is a place of joyful discovery where students get to taste, touch, smell and learn about various plants, and their connection to the foods we eat. All parents can sign up as a Garden Helper for their child’s class to help develop and lead several garden experiences throughout the school year.
