PDS Garden Sustained by Community Involvement
PDS Garden Sustained by Community Involvement

This past Saturday, members of the PDS community came out to enjoy the sunshine, surround themselves with nature and help tidy up the garden. Here is what Alanna Bocklage, President of the PDS Parents Association, had to say about the event:

"What a magical morning in the PDS Garden! Community Garden Day was a great success! Friendships were made and our community was strengthened as students and families from all three divisions came together to build new garden beds and tops of cold frames, clean out the corn patch, pull tomato stakes, weed and mulch walkways, renovate fruit trees, and water garden beds. Thank you to everyone who showed up to help make our wonderful PDS garden even more amazing!" Here are some photo highlights from the day! To see more, check out our Flicker set here.


Pam Flory, Garden Coordinator, was thrilled with the effort put forth by every person involved. Turnout was great this year and everyone involved was dedicated to performing job after job in order to get our garden looking its best! Here is a short video from Liz Cutler, Upper School English teacher and Sustainability Coordinator, discussing all of the hard work that went on and her favorite part of Community Garden Day!
