Our Garden

Garden Wish List

mural2The McKinley Elementary “Octopus’s Garden” is a continual work-in-progress. Started in 2007, our garden has evolved into a beautiful serene setting, complete with murals appropriate to an “Octopus’s Garden”. Each grade has their own raised bed in order to plant a variety of flowers, fruits and vegetables. Thanks to all those who have donated both their time and materials to create a fun, vibrant learning setting.

Please email mckinleygarden@yahoo.com with your garden photos, poems, updates and thoughts after visiting the garden. Please note: submissions may be edited before posting and not all submissions will be posted.

The watercolor sunflower was done by Karen Kenyon, the mother of McKinley teacher Richard Kenyon.  Both Richard and Karen were involved in establishing the garden at McKinley.
