Urban Oasis Project

Students wearing Palmiter Urban Oasis aprons

The Urban Oasis Project teaches horticulture students to build and maintain food gardens. Leo A. Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School and neighboring Elinor Lincoln Hickey Jr./Sr. High School are home to extensive landscaping projects, as well as an organic orchard and vegetable garden.

Produce grown by students is included in many of the dishes served at the Culinary Café. Plants and produce are also offered for sale (when available) at the school’s farmers market and employee plant sales at SCOE sites.
