Belmont Academy Charter School
Belmont Academy Charter School is located in West Philadelphia. We are a neighborhood charter school providing Head Start PreSchool and Kindergarten to the young children in the Belmont neighborhood. Unlike many inner-city schools, we are incredibly lucky to have a nascent fruit tree orchard and a large grassy backyard with ample space to run around. We have a few garden beds, but would like to increase the clean and accessible gardening opportunities for each class without decreasing the children’s play space. Thus, we are very excited to start vertical class gardens on our wooden fence. We’re excited to cultivate a love of gardening and the great outdoors in all of our students.
