The Parkway School courtyard once again is producing a bounty of tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries and herbs for consumption! Second grade students worked hard to plant, weed and harvest fruits and vegetables at the end of the school year and members of the PES Eco Schools team continued the upkeep during the summer months.
With funding from EPEF, Eco Schools Workshop Project and NJ Sustainable Schools the PES Eco School committee is moving forward on the plan to evolve the current courtyard layout to one that is more conducive to regular student use. A new walkway was installed in the courtyard this summer with the help and donated services from Groundswell Design Group and Sowsian Landscaping.
Parkway School is very appreciative to Groundswell Design Group for donating their time and expertise in creating a design plan for the renovated courtyard space and to Sowsian Landscaping for donating the supplies and labor to create the walkway, plant flowers and move the greenhouse. Everything is ‘coming up daisies’ in Parkway courtyard with a little help from their friends!
