Greenhouse/garden outdoor classroom to be built at Coolidge HS; community volunteers requested

Sounds like a very good thing! From the TakomaDC listserv:

Tuesday, at the Takoma DC Neighborhood Association meeting, the Coolidge High School Alumni Association gave a truly impressive presentation of the Greenhouse Restoration Project. This is part of a longer term - and I mean they are thinking REALLY long term - whole campus beautification plan. And it is quite impressive.

Construction is beginning this week on the first phase of the project: the Greenhouse Garden, which will serve as an outdoor classroom and park. Those of you who havent already seen the plans are gonna be so impressed with when you see how amazing this project is - really! The old greenhouse is located on the south end of the school and the Greenhouse Garden will be just outside of it, taking up much of the space between the school building and Sheridan Street.

A "Community Plant-It Day" will be held on Saturday, October 16 from 10 am to 4 pm. If you'd like to help plant-it, RSVP to Ann Beman, abemanabeman at gmail dot com

While browsing the Coolidge Alumni Association site, I also found an interesting video about the history of the greenhouse at Coolidge:
