School Gardens

Mountain Roots Education is the hub for school gardens in the greater Teton area. We work with partner schools to develop, fund, and run school garden programs ensuring a stable and well-rounded program. We offer STEM curriculum that complements the public school learning standards in both Wyoming and Idaho.

Alta Elementary School

With its greenhouse, raised beds, and new orchard, the school garden at Alta Elementary thrives with a network of passionate parents, teachers, and students. More than a garden, it's also a place to play with a "musical flowers" installation.

Tetonia Elementay School

Our largest school garden, Tetonia Elementary features a greenhouse, raised beds, an orchard, and a stage with benches for conducting lessons. This garden always benefits from immense help from teachers and parents. We continue to expand the garden area and are currently preparing an area to plant raspberries.
