Tam High School grounds and landscape have been appreciated and admired from the beginning. The vision of Tam's first principal, E.E. Wood, was that a school should be a place of learning and a place of beauty as well; a place to find respite and to foster learning.
To that end the grounds were designed, planted and lovingly attended from Tam's inception. Over the years however, budget considerations, water limitations and major construction have entered the picture and much of our landscape has fallen into disrepair. Over the past few years, parents and students have begun a grass root effort to once again create lovely gardens at Tam. We are continually working to improve the campus, from Tam Alumni sponsored work days (Back to Tam Day) in the fall to weeding parties in the spring.
In addition to the students, parents, staff and alumni who have given countless hours to improve the Tam campus, a special thanks goes to:
- Kevin at Green Jeans for his continued support in advice and plant donations Charlie Rossi at Home Depot for his large annual donation of plants to the Tam Landscape Project
- Sloat Nursery for its annual support
- Tony Mekisich Horticultural for ongoing attention to the landscape irrigation
- Tony Catrino, Director of Maintenance and Operations for the Tamalpais High School District
- Pat Gannon and the whole maintenance crew at Tam High
