Creating an Outdoor Classroom

Due to funding by Bedford FAME, students from the Hillside Program were able to join a master carpenter in constructing a handicapped-accessible potting bench that will be donated to MKES and a bench that will be placed in the school’s garden along with a lighting system to aid the growth of plants. The students were also able to decorate bird houses and bee homes that will be used to pollinate the garden.

Students were able to work cooperatively and develop skills with tools such as the circular saw.
