HISTORIC TAPPEN PARK COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP’S “PEAS & CARROTS HORTICULTURE PROGRAM”
“Maintaining a connection with the natural world helps children develop healthy social skills, enhances school curricula,
strengthens family ties and fosters an understanding and appreciation of the environment and our place within it.” – American Horticultural Society
The Historic Tappen Park Community Partnership is proud to announce the start of its 2nd season of our Peas & Carrots Horticulture Program!
Peas and Carrots is a program created to encourage and strengthen parental involvement in their children’s lives through activities surrounded around the planting, beautification and maintenance of their local park. Peas & Carrots is not just geared towards families; community groups, residents and businesses are also welcome to participate!
The Historic Tappen Park Community Partnership hopes you join us in supporting community gardening and outdoor learning in Tappen Park this season. We need your ‘hands-on’ help to keep Stapleton’s local park clean and beautiful!
Here’s How It Works!
Peas & Carrots is a 10-session program that includes landscaping, removal of litter and weeds from the garden beds. Participants will learn to incorporate compost into the soil and plant perennials and ground cover, and work on the entrance beds along with going over the basics of maintaining a horticultural site: weeding, waste removal, and watering.
