The Rubens Ott Music and Peace Garden

The Rubens Ott Music and Peace Garden is given in the memory of Rubens Ott, a former Evergreen student. During his years at Evergreen, Rubens nurtured his love of learning, reading and math in particular. He also loved the outdoor playground, and spent many happy moments there with his friends. We are grateful for the generous support of the Ott Family to the Pine Cone Park project.

“There must be provision for the child to have contact with nature, to understand and appreciate the order, the harmony and the beauty in nature.”  -- Maria Montessori
