Fall 2007

Students at Wortley Road Public School planted an outdoor classroom at their school. Five trees are planted in a circle and surrounded with shrubs. Large stones were placed in front of the trees as benches for seating. The entire area is mulched with woodchips to complete the outdoor room.

About 380 students helped throughout the day, planting trees and shrubs and spreading mulch. It was a gorgeous fall day, and the trees will add much needed shade to this playground.

Many students helped throughout the day.
