Introducing the Harris Community Garden
Many of you might know that behind our school is a thriving garden, but you might not be aware that we are transitioning this to be a fully working community garden. Our goal is to bridge community and school by way of our beautiful outdoor space. Additionally, we are in the process of gauging interest to better suit your wishes of involvement with this initiative. Specifically, we are looking to offer Community Ed classes, and would love to see if you're as excited about these as we are! Ms. Windwehen and her students proudly grow organic vegetables and compost with huge success and would love to share their knowledge. Please click here to fill out a form if you are interested in being a part of the garden in any way.
