Seeds of Hope
While North Charlestown students and teachers are learning and working from home, some dedicated volunteers are still improving their schoolyard for place-based learning. They are pruning historic apple trees, taking care of blueberry groves, restoring sections of overgrown forest to field, and sowing seeds of plants that will be in full bloom or ready to harvest in the fall. These seeds are an image of hope, the hope these volunteers have and the hope we all have really, that schools will be busy with students learning and playing in them come September.
We encourage you to sow seeds of hope in your community this spring and share your stories with us or at the very least your pictures!
