Lisa Armstrong, Co-Chair of the Greening Greenfield Committee, writes that the ground breaking for the first phase of the Greening Greenfield project will take place on Thursday, June 11 followed by a community picnic, "a sort of farewell party for the school yard as it it is... Hooray!"
You are invited to celebrate along with Greenfield. The ground breaking ceremony and community picnic is on Thursday, June 11th from 5:30-7:30 at Greenfield School, 2200 Chestnut Street, on the Sansom Street South Play Yard,.
Greening Greenfield is a unique public/private partnership focusing on the transformation of Greenfield School's urban site into an outdoor laboratory that teaches children about micro-climates, indigenous plants, rain water absorption, energy conservation and harvesting, and their symbiotic relationship to the environment.
The Community Design Collaborative is proud to have had a part at the start of this project. We'll be on hand to hold a shovel.
