Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts looking to grow onto the third floor

A third floor currently sits unused atop the Patrick Henry School. Efforts are underway change that situation.

Patrick Henry School started on just one floor. It quickly expanded to two floors and then had to add to modular units in the parking lot. There is still an unused third floor in the building but it’s in need of serious renovation work. As we all know renovation work isn’t cheap. The work is estimated to cost $30,000. In order to help cover the cost the school has started its own fundraising effort.

In order for us to better serve our community, we need to be able to access all of our classrooms. Currently, we are in a historic school building with fully operational classrooms on the first two floors and modular units outside. We have also have third floor that is in need of a major renovation in order to house students. We can only fully realize our mission by accessing this critical space.

Here’s how we will achieve this

We’ve officially launched our ‘Growing Potential’ campaign, where we seek to fundraise the necessary capital to fully renovate our third floor. We’ve built a unique coalition of parents and community supporters to help in our efforts and are taking a multi-faceted approach to make this happen. While our total cost is estimated at $3.5 million, we are chunking our fundraising plan into smaller benchmarks, using all amounts donated directly toward the renovation.

The Forest Hill Foraging and Plant Walk begins at 1 PM this Saturday.

Come out this weekend for a plant and foraging walk to get to know your leafy neighbors and feel more at home in both the city and the woods. Meeting place is at the Stone House.

Some things we will cover:

-Fall and Winter Edible Plants

-Common Herbs for Basic First Aid

-Basic Plant Parts and How They are Used in Identification

-Identifying Trees in Winter by Bark,Twigs, Buds and Leaf Scars

-Ethics, Mindsets and Next Steps in Forgaging

The walk will be led by Oliver, who has studied these topics for almost 10 years and done plant walks in multiple states. We will tie in information and stories from a wide range of fields including botany, farming, anthropology, history, bushcrafting and survival training. We will try to weave the threads together while avoiding some of the more nerdy, culty, or fear-based approaches to our relationship with nature and “survival.”

-Bring a notebook if you like but a full list of the plants, their uses and how they are identified will be provided after the class!

-There is a suggested donation of $10 but all are welcome.
