Many thanks to Kate, Sue, and John of the Tibbetts Family Farm in Lyman, for donating a great selection of pollinator plants to the garden at Carpentier Park in Sanford. 10th grade biology students - who have focused their end-of-the-year service learning project on the garden - worked today to transplant the donated flowers into one cleared pollinator bed and create a second bed to mirror the first.
Today was the students' second work day at the garden ... two weeks ago they staged an impressive garden cleanup - tackling the weeds, turning the compost pile, weeding around the old fountain, and organizing the garden shed.
Valerie Lander, a 10th grade biology teacher at Sanford High School is excited to see how much the students can get done in the time they have. Many hands make light work!
