At East Moriches Elementary we have a center courtyard that has never been cared for. Everyday, students and faculty members alike, pass by and see it. This Saturday we are having a rummage sale to raise money for plants. We have already raised money and put in a water source. We are also planning on purchasing barrels to collect rain water. One of our long term goals is to create an outside classroom. The gardens will correlate with stories as well as offer an outside reading area. We are of course in need of help. The start-up is always the most difficult. We are all sure that once it is established we will all take pride in the courtyard's upkeep.
