Blue Schoolhouse Garden Coach
Get invaluable organic gardening advice from Bill Davison, who has transferred his organic farming expertise from the Blue Schoolhouse Farm to in-town gardening. Bill Davison is a biologist, former organic farmer, and lifelong avid gardener who has been gardening in Illinois for the past 17 years. From 2003-2009 Bill owned and operated the much loved “Blue Schoolhouse Farm” and its farmer’s market stand. He also sold his produce at Common Ground and to the Garlic Press Market Cafe. Bill has moved to town and has transferred his organic farming savvy to backyard (and front yard!) gardening. Helping friends start and maintain gardens has proven to be a very rewarding experience, and now Bill would like to share his expertise and passion with a wider audience. Let him help you turn your yard into a fruit & vegetable heaven.

Mulberry School
Mulberry School
The Mulberry School is an independent, private, non-profit school that provides children with the opportunity to learn in an environment that values curiosity and natural development. We work to “nurture the innate love of learning” by teaching children how, as opposed to what, to learn. Serving the Bloomington-Normal community since 1971, Mulberry School is a cooperative institution where parents have the opportunity to participate in nearly every aspect of the school. It is this support and input that allows us to provide a unique learning experience for our students.
