Dandelion Initiative


We are lucky to have beautiful school grounds with gorgeous native plantings, and thanks to Genesee Hill families like YOU, we are able to care for them.

We started out with weeding parties, Study Club and individuals weeding. Over the COVID shutdown, countless families and school neighbors have continued this effort individually. This initiative helps to consolidate our efforts.
