Garden and Courtyard Committee

Garden and Courtyard Committee  – The courtyard and garden provide outdoor classroom space for our students. Volunteers help coordinate the maintenance, upkeep, and beautification of the FHES courtyard, gardens, and grounds. In addition, committee members assist with curriculum opportunities for teachers in the courtyard and gardens, in support of FHES becoming an “Eco-School.” Committee members coordinate with room parents to maintain a frequent presence in the courtyard throughout the year. Parents with an interest in native plants, birds, composting, carpentry, vegetable gardening, and landscape design can also be resources and projects are available for community service groups such as the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
