Plant The OLC

Why was that grass so tall?

The OLC is an Outdoor Classroom in front of the school. It started from a Grant from the Azle Education Foundation. The OLC provides hands on demonstrations of weather, erosion, deposition, seed dispersal, plant life cycle, water conservation, solar electrical generation, rainwater harvesting, and an example of native Texas plant species.

Sometimes the grass may get tall. Don’t be alarmed. Rember it’s an Outdoor Ed space designed to be an educational tool. From time to time the grass and wildflowers are required to grow tall and reseed.

The OLC features plants that have been chosen from local Native Plant experts from The Native Plant Society of Texas, as well as Tarrant County Master Gardner's and the experts at the Texas Agri Life Extension office.

Matt Cook leads an after school Club that meets periodically through the year. Members pull weeds, clean sidewalks, plant flowers…. At the end of the year we will go on a working field trip and donate two hours worth of labor to a local garden and learn how good soils are made.
