How can we “green” our school and open it to the community?

A:

Start by organizing like-minded neighbors, then visit Community-School Parks, and begin discussions with teachers and administrators through your school site council. Flower and vegetable gardens, planters, trees, playground equipment and grass ball fields are all components of a Community-School Park and can be introduced bit by bit. Hopefully, the school can be opened to neighborhood residents during non-school hours, weekends and school holidays. See the District’s ombudsman page, for information about how to create a small garden or plant trees on your campus.
