Summer is practically here! Be sure to check in within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be highlighting some of our sustainability initiatives and you can find out how you can help out in the school garden this summer (and get free produce!).
For now . . . . The 6th grade finished working on one of the storm drains today. Check it out!
Note: We didn’t get photos of the entire process, but in various small groups the 6th grade students came out and worked on the project. During the next school year, we will be moving down the Tamarind Road hill (towards Cold Spring Lane) and working on more educational murals on the storm drains.
We’d like to thank Blue Water Baltimore and the Cold Spring Community Association for their continued support!
Spring is here and with it an abundance of spring related projects are budding!!
On Wednesday, Mr. Anderson, WSB parent (Lauren), and her two children (Ellie and Sebastian), took part on our volunteer day to clean up the forest in time for the Children’s Garden Spring Festival. In just 45 minutes this small crew picked up 35 pounds of garbage! (Which just so happens to be the body weight of Sebastian.) Just imagine what a larger group could do within 2 hours of time! Please consider joining us for our next round of volunteer days!
WSB’s 6th & 7th Grade students are designing storm drain murals for the Coldsping Newtown neighborhood. We are hoping to get 4 of them installed this Spring! Students have been working on their designs and will be chalking them onto the drains next Friday. They were given guidance by Blue Water Baltimore over the winter on how to make effective murals, and we have reached out to the Coldspring Community Association to seek their approval.
Check out drafts of the 4 creative designs!
