The blogger happens to be a member of the University Laboratory School's Founding Board of Directors. As a consequence I'm pretty close to the discussions surrounding our efforts to open a public school - chartered by UWM - in the historic Eschweiler buildings. It's an exciting prospect - opening a STEM-focused middle/high school in the midst of Innovation Campus. For the better part of a year we've been working towards reaching an operational agreement with the Wauwatosa School District so that we can proceed with our fundraising and attempt to make this happen.
The gardens are shaping up nicely. Everything is growing - including the weeds. One and a half inches of rain over a couple of days and I spent the better part of a Saturday weeding. And again on Sunday. There was the mounding of the potatoes and pruning twenty-six tomato plants. I have been sweating like a field hand. And it's only been 64 degrees and cloudy.
