Welcome to our school garden page!
We would like to give a huge ‘Thank you’ acknowledgement to the David M Cox PTA for making this all possible. We would also like to acknowledge Miss Davis and the Garden Committee for guiding our staff and students this first year, harvesting each week, and for activities beyond their contracted day! Our school appreciates your acts of generosity!
Students of all ages can learn from the Green Our Planet’s experts with video lessons on STEM, nutrition, gardening, hydroponics and more. Learn how to grow fresh veggies at home with our farmers; discover the science of growing plants in water with our hydroponics experts and cook up a healthy storm with our chefs!
With new videos each week, there’s always more to learn at the Green Our Planet Virtual Academy! Click on the title or HERE for access.
Green Our Planet Guest Chef: Making Pizza
Our 5th grade students received a special experience as our guest chef, Chef Ryan from Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill in Caesars, used fresh basil from our our DMC Garden to make pizzas! This was an exciting treat and a wonderful way to enjoy the fruit of our labor in the DMC Garden.

Tremendous appreciation for Chef Ryan Calvo from Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill @ Caesar’s Palace for coming in and doing a demonstration at our school! Chef Calvo made tomato soup with some ingredients from our very own garden! Our students enjoyed this special treat which was made possible through the efforts and sponsorship of Green Our Planet and Bank of America!
