The pond has papyrus, Aloe, yarrow, among others as well as minnows, mosquito fish and a few frogs. It's maintained by the Pond Society and a few civic minded neighbors.
Two of the beds belong to Earth Camp and the rest are kept by various classes at Becker.
The garden was founded in 1989 and teaches children about the 4 major aspects of the environment: water, waste, energy and sustainable agriculture. I've tried on several occasions to find out who and how the beautifully sculptured walls, pond and herb garden were built...if you know, please comment!
Today I noticed that the starlings have taken over the Purple Martin Habitat! Oh no!
Isn't it magical? I mean seriously...it's so Dr. Seussian and the kids are really drawn in.
