“That’s what we need to know. Those grandparents have been growing flowers and gardens for so long, and they know what they are doing,” Heil reveals.
The principal notes, “We want help and expertise in different areas .... We would like to have more beds, maybe a herb garden or more flowers.”
The women would like ideas from community members, including gardeners, landscapers, architects, designers, farmers, builders, naturalists and others of how to best use the grant money. They are hoping to schedule a meeting in January, where participants can brainstorm ideas of what can be done.
Persons do not have to make a long-term commitment. They can just show up at the meeting for one night and offer suggestions. However, if there is something they would like to help with, they can.
For more information, persons can call the school at 934-4509. When a meeting date is scheduled, persons will be notified.
