BIS Garden and Cooking

BIS Gardening

The BIS garden is now located on the upper BIS campus overlooking the Osberg field. The garden area was moved to its new location in 2016, and was rebuilt with new raised beds, a new drip irrigation system, and a new storage shed. Students access the garden through different programs, including a lunchtime garden club, Trojan Time electives, as part of a PE class garden program, and through the newly formed Environmental Health Affinity Group.

Contact Rusty Hopewell, District Wellness Coordinator, for more information. 


BIS Cooking

BIS students have been cooking in the garden for several years. This year the cooking program is getting an upgrade with a new cooking area (see photo) in the Maker Courtyard (adjacent to new media center). This new space will be established as a healthy and food-safety compliant cooking space. The cooking coordinator, Rusty Hopewell, will be seeking grant funding to convert this space with new cookware, refrigeration unit, hand washing sink, food prep surfaces, shade structures, and seating area.

The cooking program will not start until the new cooking space has been established.
