Since 2012, the Green House Nursery School Sensory Learning Gardens have been growing every year. This has been made possible by green house's in the Orono area, and surrounding communities.
Today, Bagley's Green House donated vegetable plants for the garden, and Evermay Nursery donated plants for the sensory garden.
This summer, founder Connor Archer wants to add soil into the garden, along with mulch.
Besides that, it's just maintaining the plants that are already there. "This was the first part of the Courageous Steps Project, so continuing these gardens even when the project is expanding, is pretty cool" said Connor Archer.
Since the establishment of the gardens, children have learned to water the plants, remove weeds from the garden, and harvest vegetables for use in the school.
Archer hopes to continue the gardens in the coming years, as this is an important thing to do for the school.
