7th Graders Plant Bulbs - Photos

Today our TBE 7th graders planted hundreds of bulbs in our Finkelstein Mitzvah Garden. The class decided that as their mitzvah project, they will donate the flowers to nursing homes and hospitals, and also sell some for Passover and donate the proceeds to plant trees in Israel. Before the planting, I spent time with the kids discussing Judaism's focus on envionmental sustainablilty. The garden, a centerpiece of TBE's educational programming, had been damaged severely by Hurricane Irene, but recently was fully repaired. Click on photo below for pics:
