The Harrington Park School courtyard gardens are thriving! This courtyard garden is enjoyed by students and teachers and staff throughout the school year and it is a wonderful resource and educational opportunity for our K-8 students. There is even an outdoor classroom! Just before the July 6 School Board meeting I had to chance to take a peek at the courtyard with Councilwoman Joon Chung and EC chair Peter Ardito and here are a few photos. Spanish teacher Sally Denbeaux and a small group of Garden Club students tend to the garden over the summer– and were picking raspberries and lettuce the week that we visited — for school staff and visitors and summer program students to enjoy.
The perennial pollinator flower plot – planted by Girl Scout Troop 675 in 2013 – continues to bloom and attract bees, butterflies, and other insects.
