We're diggin' it  PDF Print E-mail

With a few short weeks left until completion, we're digging our way to a new driveway and access from the Whetstone Bridge. 

When completed, both sides of the driveway will be at grade with the entrance to the store. Permeable paving will allow rain and melting snow to seep into the ground and reduce runoff into the Whetstone. In addition, the base layers under the paving will trap and help filter pollutants that would otherwise go into the Whetstone Brook, all part of our plan to minimize our impact on the stream.

The classrooms from Oak Grove, Academy School, Green Street, and Hilltop Montessori were all involved in this new venture.  It started with a visit to each classroom by a local vampire who discussed some of garlic's history and folklore, followed by investigation stations where each student dissected various members of the Liliaceae family (onions, leeks, garlic, and tulips) to discover each plant's anatomy.  Who knew that garlic cloves are actually the bottom part of the plant's leaves?  Does anyone believe that garlic can actually repel mosquitoes?
