We spent the last two beautiful days enjoying our Five Senses Outdoor Classroom and Community Habitat Garden. We planted vegetable plants and seeds in our teaching garden raised beds, sunflowers by our giant ruler, and perennial flowers in the pollinator beds.
Each age group enjoyed time digging and playing in the Children’s Exploration Area, with a sand box, gravel box, fairy garden, dinosaur garden, and lots of garden tools and dirt! Feel free to stop by anytime and take a peek at the growing plants, the little peaches, apples, blueberries and blackberries.

On Wednesday morning, a group of Mountain Brook High School Seniors and staff spent 2 hours of community service here at MBPC, completely reviving our garden in preparation for some exciting new plans! The community garden has been a part of MBPC for many years, and has experienced several transitions. We are excited to announce that we are in the process of renewing the garden to serve the preschool, church and community as an educational space, with a quiet Habitat Garden, a perennial pollinator garden, and an outdoor classroom with a teaching garden. The MBHS group gave us the kick-start we needed as we begin this energizing project!
