The Cordata School Garden was built in 2015 with support from Common Threads. It expanded the following year with the hard work and dedication of the Cordata PTA as well as the support of the Principal and Vice Principal. The Cordata Garden is a place of beauty, tranquility, and exploration for Cordata students with garden beds featuring a variety of herbs, kale, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, squash, cucumbers, and beautiful flowers that attract bees, butterflies, and birds. The community at Cordata has embraced their school garden and installed an outdoor classroom space including benches and a whiteboard in Spring 2018. In the Summer of 2019, members of Cornwall Church helped build a deer fence and expanded the garden to include a food forest area with perennial fruit trees, native shrubs, and berry bushes.
