A. Its primarily myself directing it and doing most of the work but the AV school students are involved as well.

 

Q. What is your favorite plant in the courtyard?

A. I do not have a favorite because all of the plants need attention and care, some more than others.

 

Q.  How difficult is it to tend to the Courtyard?

A. Its a very difficult project. It has many different plants in there. It was so overgrown and neglected for the first three years of its existence. The first part of the project was to clear it out and give the current plants and the opportunity to grow and thrive. Most of the first year was preparing it and then we began to improve it which is what we are still working on.

Courtyard Program

 

Mr. Aguiar will be creating a program that allows students to contribute to the courtyard. This will count towards community service hours. It is also a year-round project that can involve science and will help you learn about different types of plants. Every plant needs special care. All students are welcome to take part in the growth and development of the courtyard.
