  • How do I get involved in our school garden?

    Easy answer - just come to one of our Friday meetings 9am - 10:3am - listed on the school calendar.  If you can't make these meetings, call, write or stop by and see Ms. Sheri 718-748-7404 x 2323 MElliotSheri@schools.nyc.gov.  Share your ideas.  Our activities change year to year based on parent involvement, staff involvement and this year - construction - but our main goal is to maintain and improve our beautiful space and increase our student use of this outdoor classroom.   Garden group members are also interested and can work on projects involving  cooking, nutrition, science and nature education, poetry, art and more!
