Greetings from Albany, New York!
Albany Elementary Schools Plant Journey North Gardens

Albany, New York, celebrates spring each year with over 200,000 tulips! They hold an annual Tulip Festival each year on Mother's Day weekend. Next spring, Journey North Tulips will be among the thousands blooming thanks to Carol Ann Margolis and Jane Calloway who planted gardens this fall in several Albany, NY elementary schools.

Preparing for planting we read about the tulip study together. Then we planted our bulbs at Giffen Elementary School (in Albany).
