Lynbrook continues to expand “hand’s on” learning activities in their community gardens installed throughout the school property. (Garden Pictures)
Natural Habitat Garden
The natural habitat garden provides native plants, including milk weeds for the study of the monarch butterfly.
Courtyard perennial, tree and shrub garden for birds, butterflies, and bees
Through the efforts of an Eagle Scout project, the courtyard inside of Lynbrook gets transformed with trees, shrub, and perennials.
Vegetables and sustainability
Current project involves expansion to vegetables, herbs, and sustainable gardening practices teaching families and children how fresh vegetables can be grown in small areas. Plans are to utilize families through the Family Learning Center, many of whom live in apartments, for an educational program on container vegetable gardening. This project is in its infancy and is a great opportunity for volunteers.
