P.S. 1 Students Pre-K - Grade 4
This week we have a collection of drawings from the local P.S. 1 students. These drawings were made during a field trip to the Garden for a series of composting workshops in collaboration with the Lower East Side Ecology Center & Common Ground Compost. Over the past three months the students have visited the Garden to learn about planting seeds and making their own compost bins using worms and other natural materials found around the Garden.
This week's work is a manifesto written and recorded by Flavia Bertorello, inspired by one of her visits to the Garden. This piece was featured in our first Call to Artist show.

This week's work is a poem written by Garden supporter Jake Dietrich. "Every time I go I feel surrounded by so much creative energy. I like to think that the power of all the great minds who gather here help nourish and grow the ideas that are but seeds inside of my mind. To me, it's like a think tank for the artist. My poem tries to illustrate this."
