Getting Wet is Educational at BNS

New pipes have tighter , easier connections
Paula Lee Poy, BNS parent, and her sister, Perryne Lokhand Wala, have been working to create afterschool programming that combines gardening, irrigation, and cooking.  Phase 1 is nearly complete. Irrigation.  Two engineers--Granger and Robert--have improved upon Arbo's pipe systems making them more child-(and teacher-) friendly.  These systems will be used to bring water to our outdoor gardens; and hopefully be used indoors, too!  Thanks to Johanna for pictures.  Thanks to 2nd grade teachers and Matt who worked on this project from the beginning.
