Summer School Students, Bring Your Clothespin Stewards!

It’s time to celebrate!  Students and teachers at Cos Cob and Hamilton Avenue Summer School, and their clothespin people, have been tending to school tower gardens and compost bins together, with great care and imagination.  We’re inviting our community and new friends and their families to come take a tour of our large vegetable garden and greenhouse at the GEC and play our favorite games together.

We’ve been exploring our small edible green spaces with very small characters that act as stewards. Registered families will get the chance to build a Steward, explore the GEC garden and greenhouse, where dedicated volunteers started and nurtured our school garden plants.


$10/family supports the Garden Education Center of Greenwich and outreach programs like Summer School Enrichment.

ATTENTION! You must be less than 6 inches tall to try Country Fair Activities

Thank You!

The summer school gardening enrichment program has been made possible by the generosity of GEC members, and by a grant received by the Greenwich Public School from the Greenwich Alliance for Education.
