EDUCATION at Brunswick Garden
The Scandinavian School of Jersey City has had a plot for several years. Teachers come with a class of children to plant and work on their plot. Parents help also.
The Health and Food Club at McNair Academic High School is growing a variety of plants in containers, and an informal group of children with an adult (member) comes often to the Garden in the afternoons, even during the off-season.
Within the Garden community we occasionally have short presentations at the beginning of a monthly work party. More regularly, there is a lot of informal education and information transfer that takes place during those work parties, when people work together on a project. People learn what is a weed, what is not, what various plants are and what is happening with the compost and the bees.
We encourage group visits to the space -
