  7. 7. The PS 118 School Garden is an outdoor living laboratory that nurtures curiosity and exploration, supports learning, fosters health, and builds life-long skills and knowledge, enabling our community to grow towards a more environmentally sustainable future. The garden is inspired by Riverpark farm, a portable and modular NYC farm located in a dense urban community. Like the farm, the school plants in milk crates with special liners that provide for aeration, water drainage and heat release and will help the school get bigger, better plants than what it would get with the same size plastic, fabric, or other liners. 
 The PS 118 garden is an outdoor classroom for any number of subjects, including science and ecology, math, creative writing, language arts, biology, solid waste issues, arts, and the environment. Our garden is a space for kids with different learning styles and abilities to work in groups and engage in hands-on, cross-disciplinary education.

  8. 8. PS 29: In the fall of 2007, teachers, parents, administration, custodial staff and school chefs came together to envision what food and farming would look at PS29.  As a result, the school garden serves as an outdoor classroom and is instrumental in teaching about the life cycle of plants, nutrition, and the relationship between plants, animals and people.  Students learn the benefits of growing their own food. They always take pride in what they have grown and are eager to sample and share vegetables with their friends in the cafeteria and school community.  The Curriculum comes alive in the garden and it has given a purpose to our learning.  Students learn about insects and particularly the relationship between pollinators and the food we grow. The PS 29 school garden is also used for after school courses and as a lunch time club for students.  Families help maintain the garden throughout the summer.  Some of the vegetables and herbs that are growing in our garden are carrots, peppers, lettuce, butternut squash, tomatoes, kale, basil, beans, corn, arugula, onion and garlic bok choy, chives, fennel, sage, parsley, tarragon, rosemary, thyme, lemon balm, mint, oregano,and strawberries. We also have an apple tree. We have a pollinator garden with many perennials.

  9. 9. PS 146/Brooklyn New School (BNS): For over 14 years, families and staff and children have worked to fulfill the dream of greening the schoolyard.  When BNS first moved to 610 Henry Street, the yard was a concrete parking lot bordered by a highway.  Beginning with two metal trough planters that are still in front of our school, the garden added a dozen or so movable raised beds, and finally, in-ground beds were built four years ago. The School Farm includes a farmhouse classroom or ecocasita, rainwater catchment system, and a worm composting system. The science and sustainability curriculum connects  to the farm and students are actively involved in caring for it.  Three hens were added just three years ago.  What's next? A goat?  A green roof? BNS is still hoping and dreaming and working.

  10. 10. The Brooklyn Urban Garden Charter School (BUGS) in Windsor Terrace is a community- based diverse-by-design middle school in CSD15 which is driven by its mission of sustainability and its CARES values. Since its founding 7 years ago, BUGS has been developing its gardens and its garden curriculum as a key element of our approach to sustainability education, which include environmental, social and economic sustainability. Over these years BUGS students have built and designed 3 different gardens. The first two gardens that were created were a milk crate food garden and the wildlife habitat garden. The raised bed food garden was originally made with reusable milk crates because it was in the recess yard and there was no soil to plant in (it was therefore called "The Yarden"). After negotiations with the building, the food garden moved to the front of the building making it more accessible and available to the community and other schools that share our building. The wildlife garden was designed and planted around the same time as a habitat for birds and insects and for the study of systems thinking and life cycles. The final garden was designed and planted by 6th grade students in 2017-2018 as a peace garden to demonstrate and share our commitment to mindfulness and peace that is another key element of our school culture through our meditation program and focus on social sustainability.
