    I am about to purchase some furniture for our outdoor learning area.  I am looking for durable, long-lasting benches and picnic tables.  I would appreciate any suggestions or websites.

    I added a pic of our garden in Brooklyn taken from the subway.

    Hi! Good luck w your beautiful garden! Here is a link to a website with convertible benches. We purchased some of these for our school gardens and they stay nice looking and the flexibility to go from bench to table is really handy! - Katie

    Our library recently got some of the convertible bench / tables and they seem quite sturdy. I can check where they purchase them. The color is more like wood so it wouldn't get dirty or stained easily. 
    I also suggest you consider furniture with wheels. Just a thought. Your garden is beautiful! Did you folks paint the mural?

    I would appreciate any information you can supply.  Our very talented school custodian painted the mural for our students.  (You should see my hydroponic lab!!!!)
