CitySprouts Garden

The garden at the Morse School faces Granite Street and is often cited as the “most viewed” CitySprouts garden by passersby. Since 2004 the garden has expanded to half dozen in-ground plots, a compost bin, rain barrel and a garden shed featuring a mural created by the art teacher and CitySprouts summer interns in 2008. In the center of the garden is a large apple tree that provides apples for the school’s annual cider pressing each fall. The garden features an alphabet garden with tile letters created by first graders. The garden also includes a pollinator garden, an herb bed, strawberry patch, raspberry bushes and a three sisters garden.

CitySprouts 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 Morse 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].
