Although just a patch of grass right now, the area in front of Hopkins School will soon become a vibrant, hands-on educational tool at Hopkins School. On April 12th, volunteers will officially break ground outside the school in order to begin building a community garden.
With the idea in place, parent volunteer and landscape architect Laura Harrigan came up with the design. The school then recruited about two dozen parent volunteers to help facilitate the plan. The goal of the project is to create an interactive learning environment for students that connects to the curriculum on multiple levels.

Some of the money to fund this project was raised by students at the Hopkins School Talent Show in March, but donations are still being accepted. If you would like to donate to the Hopkins Community Garden, send a check in any amount payable to Hopkinton Public Schools with HCG in the memo to Hopkins School Office, 104 Hayden Rowe Street, Hopkinton, MA 01748.
