Welcome to Lewis Middle School!
About This School Garden
We began working with master teacher Jim Roether at Lewis Middle School in August of 2013. OCE to supports the school’s EnviroTech and GreenTech classes, serving 180 students each year. Students focus on understanding global environmental issues while creating local solutions in their own classroom and homes. One Cool Earth staff and volunteers visit the school site once/week to assist with developing and maintaining school-wide composting and recycling programs, garden projects, and conservation activities. Out of class, OCE helps plan events, publicizes class accomplishments, and raises funds to support in-class projects. The classes host guest speakers regularly, including Integrated Waste Management Authority composting, recycling, and zero waste presentations, the C4Green Building Council’s Build Smart trailer, the local county supervisor, school board members, Cal Poly student presenters and other local professionals and experts. The classes have also toured the neighboring Lawn to Foods Demonstration Garden.
