Parent Survey

Food forest survey

In case you missed the news, we're building a food forest garden next to the Takoma Park Elementary School playground with the help of a group of local volunteers. They'd love you to take a look at some of the preliminary designs for the site and then let them know what you think by filling out this survey - https://forms.gle/tEFrTVCb7mxSSA7D9. The designs are in the early stages, so now is a great time for parents to offer suggestions. Thanks so much!
