The Dolores School District hosts the second largest production space in the Montezuma School to Farm Project. The garden is located behind the elementary school adjacent to the playground and football field. Upon entrance, visitors are greeted with timber-frame beds of flowers, herbs, annuals, and perennials. The school garden features raised and contoured beds, fruit trees, a garden pond, greenhouse, five-bin compost system, a wash and food preparation station, beehive, two outdoor learning spaces, and a new pavilion. All of these spaces facilitate cooking, nutrition, sustainable food cultivation, and science, math, and English lessons throughout the year.

In addition to classes regularly coming to the garden as part of their academic schedule, the garden space is used to prepare for the collaborative student-run 3rd Grade restaurant each fall, to host summer programming, and as a space for children to come play and learn during recess.
