Dynamic sibling duo!

This fall, the universe conspired for a unique collaboration at John Burroughs Education Campus, a Garden Science partner school. Garden Science is WYG’s school-based program that delivers classroom lessons and supports schools in developing school garden programs.

City Year, an AmeriCorps service program specifically focused on supporting under-served urban schools, had coincidentally selected Burroughs as the site for their annual Make a Difference Day.

And who was planning the murals and helping to organize the event? My brother Mike! Of course, I had to come out to help paint the “Six Parts of Plant” mural. But the City Year volunteers didn’t just stop at murals. Bethany (Burroughs’ school garden coordinator) and I were also delighted about the new garden shed (with a clear roof!) that they constructed in our newly relocated outdoor garden classroom. High fives to  garden sheds, plant murals and unstoppable brother/sister teams!
