The Japhet Gardens
In the eastern industrial area of Houston, St. Catherine’s Montessori owns a second piece of property. This property is a part of a place called Japhet Creek, an environmentally protected green space amidst the factories of east Houston. In this green space, we take care of the environment, harvest eggs from our chickens, and grow an abundant amount of produce. Here, students are taught what it is like to be out in nature, and how important it is to protect it.
