Parent Coordinator Margaret Sheri and her green team parents held another open house today at the PS 102 School Garden. It was a gorgeous fall day made even more beautiful by the presence of groups of young students shepherded by their teachers.
This, after all, is what this garden is really all about. Growing tomatoes is significant but growing minds is far more important. This was just the beginning of using the new garden as an outdoor classroom. It was great to see it happen!
Margaret reports that 56 staff members visited, 22 scheduled their classes to come into the garden, and four even visited today with no advance planning. What a great start!
Margaret and the parents who have worked so hard to make this all happen deserve a standing ovation.
