Paradise Garden Launched by Students
This coming Saturday, students over at the North Buncombe Middle school will spend their make-up day constructing a garden that they chosen to call the “Peaceful Paradise”.
The team of students will be lead by Daniel Magley, a seventh-grader at the school. He will be joined by the Boy Scout Troup 15 members. The project began over the event of Green Night on Earth Day, when a couple of the students’ teachers—Antares Lance and Shelby Spivey—designed the garden for the students.
Head boy scout Magley will not only be leading his fellow boy scouts in fixing the layout and arranging the construction, he has also organized fundraising and other ways to help their school garner donations. Some of the organizations that were generous enough to lend financial help to the project include MKC Enterprises, Asheville Mulch Yard, Norseman Environmental, Bill Boughten/Edward Jones Investment and Lowes in Weaverville.
The students are now busy deciding which plants and herbs are suitable to plant in their garden, given its location and the local climate. The school plans for the garden to be a long-term project for the students, and will become the focus of future classes in science, global connections and math.Mail this post
