The Classical Roots Program is a regenerative agriculture initiative that works to integrate the stewardship of creation comprehensively across many aspects of our school’s life. On this website, you can follow the progress of that program as it expands. We have many goals. Among them are the development of outdoor classrooms, the healing of our local biome, and even the planting of an orchard. Of course, as gardeners, we know that all such plans have to be made with crossed fingers and taken with a grain of salt. Even if you prepare the soil well, what you plant often grows in unexpected ways. Sometimes it does not grow at all, and ends up mulching something else that wants to thrive. But here, you can watch as we water it, prune it, uproot bits of it to plant elsewhere, and generally enjoy the harvest.


We’re glad you’ve found us and encourage you to follow us on our journey.


So far, the Classical Roots Program has had a profound impact on our campus and community:
