Bruno’s Garden

“Bruno’s Garden,” Schechter’s organic teaching garden and eco-laboratory, brings student learning outdoors, offering corresponding lessons in composting, gauging weather, plotting and graphing, nutrition, and much more that span our entire curriculum. Kids get their hands dirty, watch plants bloom, and eat the results. They learn to preserve and pickle, observe bird adaptations,  study bee pollinations, and relate what they learn to our core Jewish values of respect, appreciation, and preservation of our environment (The World is Mine to Care for − בשבילי נברא העולם). As Jewish global citizens, students are inspired to devise ways to help repair the world (Tikkun Olam) and leave a better planet for future generations.
