- Students at Olive Crest Academy Plant School Garden


On April 18th, 2016, Olive Crest Academy students planted their individual classroom gardens for the horticulture program that Kring & Chung, LLP, Orange County Women Lawyers Association and other local businesses helped develop.

While working in their therapeutic school garden and learning about the life cycle of plants, students will gain an understanding of nurturing, problem solving, learning from mistakes, personal responsibility, and compassion.  Each classroom selected a garden theme, such as salsa, butterfly, berries, and scratch n’ sniff.  The students were very enthusiastic and involved in the planting process.  We look forward to seeing their gardens grow and the beneficial effects this program will undoubtedly have on the children.  Click here for further information.

Olive Crest Academy is a nonpublic, non-profit special education school for grades K-12 that specializes in providing individualized academic instruction to students with unique needs, including developmental and learning disabilities, emotional and mood disorders, behavioral challenges, dual diagnosis, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

If you are interested in contributing to the ongoing maintenance and curriculum implementation of Olive Crest Academy’s horticulture program, please contact Courtney Kring at (949) 261-7700 or ckring@kringandchung.com.
