Lincoln School Garden Project, June 29, 1903
This is one of three experimental school garden projects initiated in 1903 by the Brookline Education Society. Annie Crocker made the land adjacent to her house on the southeast corner of Boylston St. and Cypress St. available to the Lincoln School. In May 1903, students aged 12 15 from the seventh and eighth grade were each given a 7 ft. by 9 ft. plot for growing vegetables.
