  • Lessons learned from square-foot gardening

    Mr. Dennis Voyles' agriculture wheel class has been busy tending to their gardens located behind the CKS lunchroom. This ag class, while learning about water and land conservation, decided to try a new method called square-foot gardening. Square foot gardening is a new concept. Instead of growing crops in rows, students think in terms of square feet sections within a small plot. Each student is assigned a 4' by 4' plot enclosed by 8-inch walls of plywood. This gives each just 16 square feet of area to work with.
