Dr. Montessori once stated, “When children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.”  We see this every year when we celebrate Earth Week at Greene Towne!

 

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 and courtyard garden provide 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 close to 500 pounds of 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!
