We envision a model community school that inspires resiliency, holistic sustainability, and personal responsibility.

The James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center transforms the grounds of DeWitt Clinton High School into a destination for learning, growing, health, and community.

In the "Community Hub", neighbors, students, parents, educators, and friends will connect and engage in permaculture practices in the ethos of social, environmental, and food justice.

The "School Hub" will be a versatile education and garden space including "The Welcome Table".
Let's think of these as opportunities to celebrate, learn about, love and labor for our trees, our garden community and one another.

James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center at 2018 Municipal Art Society's Summit for New York City Innovation Exhibition, being held at Inside Park at St. Bart's, on Tuesday, October 9, next door to the Summit program at St. Bart's Church.

Here's what has been said about us: "Of the many incredible submissions that are empowering individuals to shape their built environment, our jury of Urbanist Members were particularly impressed with your project, Another Country/The James Baldwin Outdoor Learning Center on the Campus of DeWitt Clinton High School."
AFTER - THANK YOU all the urbanists who participated the event, especially those who came to our table and showed interests in what we are doing and supported us and our outdoor programs.
And big thanks to our team for a stunning presentation! The combination of tactile artifacts and story handouts, so elegantly formatted was such a strong reminder of where we have come and where we are going!
From the MAS innovation exhibition; here, one of the visitors is trying our garden grown ground cherry, whose papery soft-colored semitransparent shell is used to make Communal-Groud Cherry- Upcycling- Shadowbox Project. All photos by Vladimir Weinstein
