Gardening Program

History of Our School Garden

Our school garden started for kindergarteners back in 2003. Many years later 2018 is when the garden started to include more grades with increased funding from the PTO and the help of committed parents. 2021 was another great year for us, we partnered with GrowNYC and we were able to expand our garden to what it is today.

Volunteer Opportunities

This Spring season we need volunteers:


  • Gardening Class - during school hours

Help running the garden activities in your kid's classroom during gardening sessions.

  • Garden Maintenance - before/after school

Help maintain the garden during early mornings (8am to 9am),  after school (anytime between 2:30 - 4:00) and/or weekends.


Ways to connect:

  • Get ready to get your hands and clothes dirty!

  • Arrive 10 mins before your class for set-up & briefing and stay 10 mins after for cleaning up.

  • Let your CPR know if you can’t volunteer as planned.

  • Be efficient as much as you can as each class is less than 40 minutes.

  • Focus on helping the group leader and children as much as possible.
