John Eager Howard School personnel, RHIC staff, and other supporters of "The Green School" inititive at John Eager Howard took the first step in starting a new outdoor classroom by building raised beds.
The outdoor classroom will be located in the courtyard in the center of the school complex.
Students will soon be planting the beds with crops advised by The Whitelock Community Farm. Blue Water Baltimore advised on the building of the planting beds and will in September begin removing asphalt in the four corners of the courtyard to create further planting areas. All grades will be involved in learning sessions and care of the outdoor classroom.
