The goal of the organization was to re-create the meaning of "kindergarten," children learning from the garden. Having a nature park on a school campus would provide a hands-on learning opportunity for the students at the public school. As well, we wanted to provide a convivial space for the community to enjoy on what was a very soggy, barren piece of property.

Organizational Objectives

The Nature Park requires maintenance in the spring, summer, and fall months. It is important to be vigilant with the care of the gardens to ensure the Park remains healthy and attractive.
