The Maplewood Gardening and Landscaping Committee has big dreams for the campus! We held a work day on March 23 to refresh our school’s vegetable garden boxes for the spring 2017 growing season, do some general cleanup of the grounds, and plant three trees. There are also plans in progress to build an outdoor classroom deck in the school’s courtyard, and we have solicited a proposal from Delwood 2 artist Chris Levack to create a steel peace sign sculpture for the entrance. Plans for next year include applying for funds to install a demonstration food forest at the entrance to the school, and continuing to beautify the campus with native plants. If you are interested in helping with classroom gardens, please email the Gardening and Landscaping Chair.
