District 97 Garden Tour

District 97 is proud to announce our first school garden tour taking place on Saturday, August 18th from 10:00am to 1:00pm!

Featuring nine of our ten school gardens (Holmes is currently under construction), you will amazed by the efforts of our students, teachers, and parent volunteers. From outdoor classrooms to themed beds and from bug hotels to birdhouses, each garden is as unique as the students who planted them. Enhanced by student-created totems, sculptures, and murals, these gardens are a delight to the senses.

Free and open to all, simply download the tour guide and take the whole family on a journey of discovery to Oak Park’s public school gardens where learning happens beyond the classroom.
