Day 1: John Jay High School Senior Interns Sydney Schaus, Dan Schwartz, Rose McMichael and Madie Lewis, with Landscape Designer Pam Pooley, help clear debris at the site, and Kevin, from Town of Lewisboro Maintenance Department, turns over the soil. Photos by Sydney Schaus.
Day 2: Today we spread compost, dug holes, dug rocks, planted 350 ferns and dozens of shrubs and trees, and built a path to the bench, a path through the garden, and a surrounding border! Photos (3-6) by Sydney Schaus.The interns create a path: A path through the garden was created using light mulch and lined with branches. Our landscape designer got her inspiration for this from the Native Plant Garden that Shelby White built in Eleuthra.
A large existing rock is incorporated into the garden: and becomes a place to sit!
