Classroom visit by first graders from PS 4, The Duke Ellington School - Tuesday, May 9 2018
They, accompanied by several volunteers visited one of our outdoor learning centers, Meg's garden & Edible forest. ESL students from Ariel class of Bronx colliation HS greeted and showed them around gardens and took charge in teaching them about gardening matters including worm-bin composting.

Later, they had a picnic; to their surprises, Ray brought home-made delicious healthy salad made with lettuces and culinary herbs harvested from the garden, and apple sauce muffin prepared with rescued apples from the school cafeteria, and herbal garden tea to accompany.

Class visit from PS 125 - Tuesday, May 9 2017
Our awesome second grade supporters from PS 125 return to adore our garden and discover its wonders. This will be the third year that Behind the Book Executive Director and Founder Jo Umans has helped organize this trip of students from Harlem. We can once again hear the wonderful questions and witness the brilliant curiosity of these visiting youngsters.
