Ivy Street School's Urban Garden Featured in Brookline Tab

An Ivy Street School students tends to the school's urban garden

Ivy Street School's urban garden has been featured in the Brookline Tab!

The garden has become an annual tradition here at the school, and beyond teaching the students about gardening, it also provides theraeutic and nutritional benefits.

At forty square feet, the garden lives just outside the school in our bucolic Brookline neighborhood and contains a myriad of herbs and vegetables, which are incoporated into our culinary program. This farm-to-table aspect not only gives students nutritious meals with fresh ingredients, but it also gives them a true sense of accomplishment.
