Jumping For Joy

June 17th, 2022: With summer just a hop, skip and jump away for the 400 students at Copper Hill School in Ringoes, NJ, our gardening team helped them celebrate their You Are a Gardener® Culminating Event with our signature Humongous Hopscotch! Scroll down and jump into the most joyful event of our 2021/2022 school year! We are hugely grateful for Copper Hill's administration for being so welcoming and supportive of our #PullYourWeeds® Program!

(Make sure you scroll all the way through to hear the most joyful noise ever!)

What made this event even more incredible is that Gardener Anna & Gardener Aidan joined in to help. To do what you love, alongside of your kids is truly a dream come true!

Gardeners' Charlotte, Kelsey, Anna & Aidan chalk out Copper Hill School's Longest Hopscotch!

The Copper Hill students were literally jumping with joy!

joy: the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires : delight.

From hop the flowers to jump the foxes, our Copper Hill's School Humongous Hopscotch was a fun way to kick off their 25 year celebration that evening.

Jumping for joy is literally our favorite exercise! ~The Gardening Team

It is so fun to see Gardener Kelsey's illustrations from our children's book, You Are a Gardener® come to life on the blacktop!

All 400 students in grades K-4 got to jump our signature

Copper Hill School's Longest Hopscotch and collect a special gardener prize at the end!
