Take a look at these pictures of our Timuel D. Black Diversity Garden in progress! The garden is being improved almost daily, and these pictures are not the most recent, but they give an idea of how the garden is developing.
On Tuesday the Donoghue School Garden was planted, as announced on this blog, and here are a few pictures of the students’ accomplishments.
Stay tuned for more pictures and news about these two gardens, and let us know if you need help or advice starting an edible garden of your own! Teachers, parents, and students, please do take a look at our Garden Manual for practical and philosophical tips on starting a school garden. If the Donoghue School can do it, so can you! Our Sustainability Partners Network, which can be found at http://civicknowledge.uchicago.edu/sustainability.shtml (at the bottom of the page), includes many people and organizations who can help schools start gardens. Do contact the CKP at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you have any questions about how or why to start a school garden. We welcome your questions and comments and look forward to hearing from you!
