Introducing Our Edible Garden

We’re pleased to present our new edible garden, housed in the side yard of Brooklyn Schoolhouse. During Yard Time, children will have the opportunity to explore and tend a variety of vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs, and eventually cook with the produce they harvest from the garden. We are looking forward to trying these new foods with our students!

The garden also presents a wonderful opportunity for children to experience new tactile sensations, interacting directly with the elements - soil, water, and sunshine - to understand how these forces help plants grow and provide the food we eat. We will get to watch the garden and plants change throughout the year, and hopefully make some new insect friends along the way.
