Amy Carpi, a South School mother, is developing a proposal to bring learning gardens to New Canaan Public Schools starting with the three elementary schools.
Learning gardens offer opportunities to teach plant science and ecology in addition to art, music, math and creative writing. In the garden, our children can learn about sharing and teamwork as well as the interconnected web of life. A strong garden project needs a strong team, and we encourage all dedicated and motivated members of our community to become involved in this important investment in our childrens' future.
If you share the vision and the energy to help create Learning Gardens, please come to the organizational meeting. All members of the community are invited. Please email Amy Carpi to receive a meeting agenda and discussion points.
