The Partnership Gardens program between MS 51 and The Old Stone House began in 2005. Over 600 students are included in the community stewardship plan. Jody Reiss, a science teacher at MS 51, had planted a memorial garden with students and parents in response to 9/11. An after-school garden club cared for the space and was interested in planting more of the schoolyard. A Con Ed Green grant allowed for classroom education sessions and the purchase of perennial plant material that began the foundation of the History and Habitat gardens. The Old Stone House partnered with Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Compost Program and master composter Jon Pope led a group of volunteers to build three industrial sized, rodent proof bins at the School.
