A Living Library

The History of our Roosevelt Island Community Garden

Along with Bonnie Ora Sherk, founder of Life Frames Inc., we established the first New York- based, Community Garden & Think Park on Roosevelt Island.  Through a program called “A Living Library”, which incorporates local resources and transforms them to become vibrant, content-rich,   ecological learning landscapes, the students from PS 217,  Child School, and the Beacon After School Program, are  introduced to gardening- often for the first time!

 

Encouraged to exercise their math, science, art, and history skills in our garden, the kids make new and exciting connections to their usual curriculum.
