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. On Earth Day, several community volunteers undertook a beautification project, which has the garden looking excellent.
Victor Elementary School
Our newest school garden program, coming in the spring of 2021! Victor Elementary will soon be complete with a garden plot, raised beds, and a greenhouse.
Sponsored in part by Friends of the Teton River. Our thanks to them for helping us start this long awaited and exciting program.
