Project Inner Green

  • Location
    Brooklyn, New York

The Problem

Students live in the same borough as the school. Brooklyn has limited green space. Our school mirrors this reality. Some of the classrooms even face brick walls. Teachers and students agree that our sacred learning space must include nature if it's really going to feel the way a thriving classroom should. Students and teachers will feel more invested in the overall school community when they see the time and energy spent in improving the space.

Our Plan

There is a local, Brooklyn-based nursery/gardening store (Natty Garden). I have been there before and know that they have what we need in stock. We would take a field trip there, return to school, and have club members stock designated classrooms with the new greenery.
