Highlands Elementary School

HFHK started working with Highlands Elementary in Fall of 2012, after several months of planning with the dynamic duo of School Nurse Amy Dunigan and parent/general contractor Ed Gibson.  This project was supported by grants from The Whole Kids Foundation and The Gilliam Foundation, and by in kind donations from Mr. Gibson, Durable Plastic Design, and HFHK.


Currently, school nurse Maryann McConnell and Nancy Rybinski are the terrific Garden Coordinators.
