CitySprouts Garden

citysprouts gardenOne of the two initial CitySprouts gardens in Cambridge, the first Haggerty raised beds were constructed in 2002 on the north side of the school. Over the next five years, ‘pockets’ of gardens popped up around the periphery of the school grounds. In 2007, Haggerty received a grant to construct a new outdoor classroom garden on the south side of the school, effectively gathering the many garden areas into one outdoor classroom garden. The Haggerty garden features raised beds, a copper-paneled garden bench created by artist Mitch Ryerson and Haggerty fifth graders, and a Five Senses garden. The garden has a shed and composter.

citysprouts gardenCitySprouts is a school garden program founded on the principle that all children should experience hands-on learning with real-world applications, support and practice in making good food choices, and a life-long connection to the natural world. CitySprouts’ garden educator is at the Haggerty school twice each week during the fall and spring to support teachers' lessons and projects in the school garden. CitySprouts has volunteer opportunities in the garden throughout the year, if you would like to get involved please email [email protected].
