June Update: GW Montessori/Elementary School Gardens

GW Montessori/Elementary School in Ward 4

I drove past the GW Montessori/Elementary School today to see what their garden crew has been up to. I was pleased to find many (and perhaps up to a dozen) large garden areas (approx. 20 x 20 plots a piece) for the community and school.

I am really impressed by the work of Kristin Wilson, Cindy Muro, the resident volunteers and farmers – and of course, the wonderful leadership of both Valerie Hannum and Julie Noble with support of the BOE. The model here by making the GW Gardens into school and community gardens is very sustainable.

Stop by and see what I mean.

By the way, Cindy is working on a Children’s garden for the summer. I believe they will meet each Friday once school let’s out.

If you are in Kingston Ward’s 2, 3, 4, and 5 you should really follow along with their progress. A Yahoo! Group for the GW Garden group is live and active. Visit it HERE
