The Hugh Cole COZ Garden is located in the courtyard of the Hugh Cole Elementary School in Warren, Rhode Island. The garden provides COZ students with the unique opportunity to learn basic gardening skills throughout the school year and summer camp. Our goal is to have students bring their knowledge home and start a garden of their own.
