We've created a special area for both academic and recreational uses for the school and the community.



The goal was to take an underused area of the school and transform it into a beautiful, usable, educational area for the children and community to use, as well as educate them about the origins and importance of various ecosystems.

Sam Panton of Terra Design Studio (terradesign.com) designed an EcoWalk consisting of a stone walkway meandering through the backyard of the Elementary School to Jermain Avenue and leading to the Pierson Schools. The EcoWalk encompasses the following features:

* Planting area with newly built planter boxes where the children learn to plant and grow vegetables.
* Grassy area for future picnic tables and outdoor activities.
* Replications of local ecosystems to teach about wetlands, woodlands and oceanscapes.
* Outdoor classroom with a storage container converted into a chalkboard allowing lessons to be conducted in a beautiful outdoor setting.

Local EcoWorks (localecoworks.org), a 501c3 nonprofit organization, promotes the need to create dynamic and environmentally sustainable solutions to common community spaces in the greater Sag Harbor area. They are responsible for the ongoing funding of this project.

The funds raised through Kickstater will pay for picnic tables, gardening materials, and the installation of photovoltaic solar panels that will power gardening tools.
