Attention garden friends — we need your help this summer! We need two families per week to weed, and one family to fill the tree bags with water.
Thanks so much to the families and Google volunteers who came out for our Outdoor Learning Center work days on Saturday and Sunday.
We need as many volunteers as possible to get the SOMA arboretum installed and to take care of our trees, outdoor classroom, vegetable garden and habitat garden this weekend!
Thought last spring was awesome? This spring, the Outdoor Learning Center is getting even better and closer to completion!
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Seth Boyden is selling plants that are native to this region, which means they can survive our temperatures and rainfall.
For our next work day, we’ll install tree markers and Story Trail signs. Please join the fun on Saturday, June 3, from 9-4 and Sunday, June 4, from 2-5.
This week the PTA dedicated the new Teachers’ Station in our Outdoor Learning Center to Seth Boyden’s faculty
Our old fence has been removed, and now we need some help with our new fence, which will double as a grape trellis.
Thanks to all who came out to work in the habitat garden on Saturday, but we’re not done yet! Help us start the installation of the new fence on Sunday, 4/9.
Some garden updates from Matthias Ebinger, including a call for helpers for a work day from 9am to 3pm this Saturday, April 1.
On Thursday night at Seth Boyden, we will start with a brainstorming session to review ideas to improve the outdoor learning experience.
Don’t forget to sign up for a shift (or two) at the Harvest Festival on Oct. 15. It can’t happen without you! We also need bakers and cooks.
The new trees in the backyard need a last bit of watering to ensure that they make it through the winter.
We are looking for volunteers for Garden Recess and Garden Maintenance Days.
We celebrated years of visionary thinking, fundraising and plain old hard work with the grand opening of our Outdoor Learning Center on Friday.
We are ready for a work day this Saturday (Sept. 10) in the schoolyard and need volunteers to weed, mulch and mow, and to install bricks and the new buddy bench.
Come join the Seth Boyden community in the official opening of the Outdoor Learning Center on Friday, Sept. 16, at 9 am.
After years of planning, hard work and fundraising, our Outdoor Learning Center is nearly complete.
Thanks to The Village Green for featuring our school in May!
Seth Boyden has become one of 11 schools and/or districts in the state to be awarded a $10,000 grant through Sustainable Jersey’s first round of school grants for the year. The grants were funded by the New Jersey Education Association and checks were presented at a brunch and ceremony on Thursday in Trenton.
The money will fund Story Trails and new planting in the school’s Habitat Garden, a mostly wild area in the school’s back yard devoted to plants and trees native to New Jersey. The story trails will be designed to lead students on walks of discovery through the garden, helping them learn to identify species in the garden, as well as to discover the animals and insects that call the patch home. Planners hope members of the community will use the garden as well. […]
