Grounds, Gardens, Facility, and Scale Solar System
Each Elementary School in New Milford has a garden plot at the Observatory, where they plant sunflowers that they have grown from seed. In 2011 they planted 60 varieties of sunflowers! What a show! For 2012, sunflowers were again plabnted by all students in elementary schools, and the second grade students had theirs planted in the 1,000 suns garden.
