At St. Andrew’s School, a boarding school in Middletown, Delaware, students work in the one-acre organic garden to plant and harvest vegetables and flowers for the community and supply produce to the Dining Hall. Organic waste from the kitchen and leaves from the grounds feed the garden’s compost heap. To manage stormwater in a sustainable manner, RAS introduced bioswales to direct runoff to a newly constructed pond adjacent to the garden. A large windmill serves as a sculptural element in the garden and supplies water from the pond to the garden’s irrigation system.
