Building outdoor classroom at Myers Middle School

The Vegetable Project wants to do much more at Myers Middle School than just dig in the dirt with kids. In fact, we propose building an outdoor classroom at the school to support a whole new dimension to teaching and learning.

The possibilities for such a development include amenities like these:

  • A shaded seating area.
  • A greenhouse.
  • Handicapped accessibility.
  • Vegetable garden beds.
  • Fruit trees.
  • Food preparation facilities.
  • Native plants.
  • Wildlife habitat.

We would like to tell you all about our thinking and planning that we have done thus far. We would like to show you a rendering of our initial ideas by Albany landscape designer Jason Schultz. Please join us if you can on Sunday, March 19, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., at the home of Julia Farrant, 38 Brookline Avenue in Albany, for food, friends and conversation.

Can’t make this gathering? Stay tuned. We’ll organize additional opportunities to learn about this exciting project.
