The Douglas Dragons Community Garden is a school garden located at Douglas Creative Arts Magnet Elementary School in Raleigh, NC. We are currently revitalizing the garden thanks to a grant from The Whole Kids Foundation.
We are an A+ magnet school where the arts are integrated daily into the classroom grade level curricula through collaboration and co-teaching between classroom teachers and multiple intelligence specialists. This approach to teaching allows for children to experience the energy of learning through multiple media such as art, dance, drama, physical education, music, and hands on science. We believe the well rounded student is smart in many ways and has multiple intelligences. Therefore, instruction should reach all of these “intelligences” and nurture all of these “smarts” to prepare students for their future.
We are: word smart, art smart, math smart, self smart, body smart, music smart, people smart, & nature smart.
If you’d like to help out in the garden, please contact us. (You should hear back from Skye Engstrom, a parent who has 3 kids at Douglas and is acting Head Gardener)
