Sycamore Canyon School Garden
Concept for a SCS garden started in the start of 2011-2012 academic year. In July 2012, SCS received a grant through California American Water to design and construct the 4500 square feet drought tolerant garden at the east side of the school ground. This establishment is now known as the SCS Science and Habitat Learning Center. In June 2013, SCS received a second grant through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Schoolyard Habitat Program to construct a 8000 square feet native plants garden in the school’s hillside. The construction for this establishment is in progress, and once complete, will become the SCS Native Landscape Observatory. In January 2014, SCS received the City of Thousand Oaks Community Enhancement Grant to begin work on an 1500 square feet vegetable garden. This establishment was completed and is now known as the SCS Edible Lab.
