On November 16th, Memorial Episcopal’s Green team joined students and staff from Mt. Royal Elementary to dedicate the new pollinator Garden and Outdoor classroom generously supported by Memorial Episcopal Church. A large group of kids packed the garden on a very cold day to lay the final ‘stepping stones’ in the Garden, to hear from Green Team Chair Dick Williams, from School Principal Skeen, and PTO President Kim Canale, along with other supporters including Blue Water Baltimore and interfaith partners for the Chesapeake.
This outdoor classroom offers a new way for students to engage with their science curriculum and with the natural world. It is a tremendous gift for all the students at Mt. Royal and they had a great day celebrating. Here are some pictures from the big event, including the Mayoral Proclamation Dedicating the Garden!
