Keys to Success:

  • Murchison Green Team. Since the expansion of the gardens, the Green Team has grown in size and interest/investment has increased.
  • Regular maintenance schedule with Green Team and teachers/staff
  • Involved and supportive PTA
  • Great opportunities for Science connections with diverse organisms


  • Use of the habitat by classes during school hours
  • Having enough time to plan outdoor lessons and take kids outside
  • Vandalism of plants and the pond has been an issue. To address this they installed cameras and increased educational signage in the garden.
  • Weeds! Bermuda likes to take over!
