Monina Gilbey has been our Garden Specialist for the past 6.5 years. Monica has been at our school as parent, volunteer, Grounds committee member over the past 9 years. She was the designer of our vegetable garden. That design was part of a convincing submission we put in to become one of the first Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden schools in the state.

We wish her all the best in her next business pursuits. Here’s a thank you from Monina.
