“There must be provision for the child to have contact with nature, to understand and appreciate the order, the harmony and the beauty in nature.”

Thank you to all of the parents, staff and faculty, and most of all the children for making Earth Week such a wonderful time at Greene Towne. Thank you to Erika Goldberg for leading this week of events and Liv Lee and the GPA for helping to organize the community service at Liberty Lands Park.

During the week, students engage in a variety of activities, learning the importance of caring for the natural environment. We welcome a new growing season by planting, setting up worm composting, and caring for our current gardens.

Our roof top container garden provides our city-dwelling students the opportunity to grow flowers, herbs, and vegetables to enjoy throughout the growing season.

Established by parent volunteers in 2003, the gardening program has expanded to include worm composting, keeping kitchen and paper waste from landfills each year. All the children, from the youngest Toddler to the oldest Kindergartner, relish digging for worms, squealing with delight when they find one.

Please enjoy these pictures of the children – they are sure to bring a smile to your face!
