Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
The school will be adding more components to their outdoor classroom. The project was started in the spring with the building of a theater, fence, sand/boulder play area and plantings. This fall they will be building gates for the fence using ‘found’ items, installing a prairie in the boulder play area, building a large raised garden to use for vegetables, installing a paver sitting area by the garden and planting an orchard. They will also be planting more native plants in their butterfly garden and other areas.

Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
