L. Leo Judice Garden Club is an after school club for fifth grade students.  Members of the club develop a sense of personal pride and responsibility by planning and maintaining vegetable and butterfly gardens throughout the campus. Members also learn environmental stewardship by organizing recycling drives for phonebooks and ink cartidges and by helping to organize the school's annual can food drive.

Healthy eating habits are also a focus of the club. The club hosts guest chefs and dieticians who share healthy eating and cooking techniques with the students.

Special thanks to the LSU AgCenter, Lafayette Master Gardeners, and faculty volunteers (Amy Bartlett, Susan Didier, Lisa Labarraque, & Melina Mouton) who provide guidance and share their knowledge with club members.
