The Wellness and Sustainability team initiated the school-wide Garden Project, creating four gardens on the school's property (www.oscarmayergardenproject.weebly.com).
Oscar Mayer Magnet School's Garden Project was awarded 1st place in the School Category for Region 3 of the 2008 Mayor Daley's Landscape Awards Program.
The 52nd Annual Mayor's Landscape Awards Program is the city's way of acknowledging the individuals, businesses, community groups, schools and other public institutions that contribute their time and energy to making our city the greenest in the nation.
Representatives of Oscar Mayer Magnet School attended an awards ceremony with Mayor Daley on November 1st at Garfield Park Conservatory. Congratulations to all of the students, teachers and parents who contributed to making the Garden Project such a stunning success in its first year.
On behalf of the Oscar Mayer Magnet School community, we would like to offer our sincere thanks and congratulations to Anastasia Hinchsliff, Janan Asfour, and all of the others whose hard work made the garden project such a success.
