How Does Your Garden Grow?

Learn about PS 139 Garden and How You Can Get Involved!

The garden committee, led by parent volunteers, organizes activities that connect kids to their natural environment. All parents and teachers interested in getting involved are welcome! Our garden can’t flourish without your help.

PS 139’s Garden – A Place for Hands on Learning

The school’s enclosed garden along Cortelyou Road has nine raised beds, a watering source, and a shed for gardening tools. It’s open to all teachers and parents who want to do garden activities with a class of kids.

Harvest Day Celebrations at PS 139 – Inspiring Kids to Eat Healthy

To inspire kids to eat healthy and learn where food comes from, we’ve brought the NYC Garden to Café Harvest Day Celebration to PS 139. Kids help with everything from harvesting the garden to creating healthy eating posters. A fun one-day event, everyone samples fresh meals in the cafeteria made from the garden’s produce.

Classroom Seed Planting – A Parent-Teacher Partnership in Learning

The garden committee acquired several grow lights for classroom seed planting. Parents can volunteer to help kids learn about the plant life cycle and do a seed-planting workshop. Easy to organize, it’s a rewarding experience for everyone!

Get Involved! The Garden Can’t Grow Without Your Help.

A teacher or parent with a child at PS 139 can get involved. No garden experience necessary. Just a desire to enrich our kids’ understanding of the natural science and encourage a healthy eating habits. Make a difference.
