RSVP by May 20th to

Charlie designed the original garden at the Greensboro Day School and now they are redoing it and other parts. When the new middle school was built, Greensboro Day School lost some well-developed outdoor learning spaces, but it also gained several lovely spaces which, today, students are using to learn, create, plan, study, and play.

With these spaces in place they are now asking for help to determine how the spaces can best be developed and used. What is an attractive and practical use of the courtyard? What does the main entrance need to feel welcoming and inviting? How can the Andreve Teaching Garden be expanded to reflect its mission?

Justin Leonard, Playscape Designer, will facilitate a workshop and discussion to determine collective ideas for the middle school’s outdoor space. Justin has served as the garden manager for the Edible School Yard at the Greensboro Children’s museum for 7 years. At the Edible School Yard, Justin helped to design, install, and expand the garden to what it is today.
