|Trust for Public Land (TPL) is an organization that helps create parks in "close-to-home places". In 2010 PS164 was awarded a new Green Yard provided by Trust for Public Land. Through a planning and design process conducted by students in our school and TPL representatives, our school yard underwent a collaborative process to be made. In 2012, after more than a year of construction, our Green School Yard was opened to our school and the public. Complete with a vegetable and flowering garden, outdoor classroom, more than 25 trees, and custom blacktop designs and play equipment, our Green Yard has become a focal point of the community. With ongoing support from TPL, we have been able to provide school based and community programs during the school year and in the summer that enrich understandings about the Earth and build bridges between the school and surrounding neighborhood.|
