Enjoy this presentation from 721K Green Team.

Thank you, Alanna O’Donnell.

Emily from 721K shows off the seed starting mix that her teacher sent her so that she can plant from home. The class has been doing a number of remote planting experiments with lemon and avocado seeds. As you can see, they have also been practicing recycling and sustainability while they are at home. Great job class Y51 and thank you Ms. O’Donnell!



As part of the award the school won, the New York Restoration Project built this shady spot for the 721K garden. Now student gardeners can take a break when the sun gets too hot.

Here some other photos of the garden and shed.

Enjoy these photos of Erin Gill and her award-winning student gardeners.

Thanks to Barbara Tremblay, principal of 721K, for submitting.
