Thanks to the efforts of The Garden Club of Houston, Urban Harvest’s Cultivated Classroom at Gregory Lincoln Education Center has been accepted into the Archives of American Gardens, an archive maintained by the Smithsonian Institution. The garden was submitted because of its importance as an educational resource for kids, especially underprivileged students, and because of its wide influence as a demonstration garden for schools in the greater Houston area and beyond.
The Archives is a collection of photographs and records documenting historic and contemporary gardens, allowing landscape designers, historians, and more a resource for research.
The database can be seen at www.siris.si.edu, and portions of the Cultivated Classroom will be available for viewing.
