Our final summer session of Sprouts Enrichment takes place the week of August 17-21. We’re all ready for imaginative exploring in the garden and Montgomery Pinetum. This session we build a fire and our stories: time for storytelling in Wild Acres! (age 3-8).  Enrollment closes August 5th.
SEE YOU AT SUMMER SCHOOL!
See you at summer school!  We are now registering classroom programs for the fall.  To invite us to your schoolgrounds and windowsill gardens for programs, please contact youth.director@gecgreenwich.org.

DID YOU KNOW?  We’ve been making a daily visit to the Greenwich Public Schools as part of their summer school’s afternoon enrichment.  We are having so much fun tending to onsite gardens and compost bins together.  It is an exciting time to learn and play along side students and teachers!  Thanks to a grant from the Greenwich Alliance for Education for providing this opportunity for students to explore plants in their own edible green spaces.  Our tower gardens at Cos Cob and Hamilton Avenue Schools are thriving!  We’ll be featuring highlights from this adventure during our August Third Sunday, and hope you can make it.  LEARN MORE HERE and Mark your calendars, August 16, 2-4 pm.
