The Teaching Garden is a joint project with faculty from the Science Division and the CUNY Medical School, financed by a Moxie grant in 2019 as part of the Campus Engagement Network. It is designed for neighboring school children to learn about the growing and nutritional value of herbs -- easy to plant, and easy to keep on your kitchen window sill. Volunteers are always needed for program development, assisting in working with children, and planting. In recognition of the Lenape people who once called this part of Manhattan home, the three sisters (squash, beans and corn) were planted this past spring. Regional and historical specimens are on the agenda. Ideas welcome! Contact Prof. Syrrakos if you are interested or have questions, Bsyrrakos@ccny.cuny.edu .
