SMS Garden

The Silverado Middle School garden is on the south end of the campus beyond the main classrooms and C wing.  

In the garden you can find a wide variety fruit trees, grapevines, native plants, vegetables, berries, and so much more. One of the student's favorite features are the small ponds full of fish, frogs and in the spring tadpoles. There are of course lizards, birds, butterflies and countless other critters and natural wonders.  Several classes use the garden on a regular basis for a wide variety of curricular and social reasons.
