Garden Day programmatically captures Ann Norton’s vision for her home to remain a place that fosters transdisciplinary learning in a safe and beautiful space.  Here, the garden transforms into a two-acre ecological classroom for over 250 Title 1 students to immerse themselves in a protected subtropical oasis and objectively study the science of the garden.  This integrated program encourages discovery-based learning, as students embrace a vital sense of place while exploring native flora and fauna to unearth the delicate balance that all living things from palms to pollinators play in our environment.  By taking the lessons outside, this organic teaching style promotes intrinsic motivation to learn and nurtures Palm Beach County’s next generation of environmentally conscious students
