Project Summary:  The Swift Garden Project focuses on two areas on the school grounds. On the playground at Thorndale & Winthrop, we will repair broken planters and revive the playground with colorful flowers for the whole community to enjoy. At the south end of the school, we will plant vegetables in raised beds and give teachers a space to provide their classes with hands-on experiences. We hope that kids will learn about gardening, healthy food choices, and environmental issues. For both areas, we hope that parents, teachers, and community members can work together for a strong neighborhood school.
