Cresaptown Receives Grant for Garden
Perennial Garden Planted in Memory of Friend, Advocate of School
Jen Thomas, Cresaptown Elementary School parent volunteer, recently applied to Annie’s Homegrown Organic Products to request funding to implement a school garden. The idea was originally to plant a vegetable garden, but after a group of fifth grade students helped to plant a Japanese maple tree and several perennials, the focus of the school garden shifted to a perennial garden.
Cresaptown has since received a grant in the amount of $250 from Annie’s “Grants for Gardens” in support of the project. The garden was planted in memory of Dorothea Lauterbach, a long-time devoted member of the Cresaptown Neighborhood Crime Watch and friend and advocate of Cresaptown Elementary School. A plaque and dedication is being planned for the upcoming school year.
Pictured are fifth graders Destiny Spiker, Grace Lawrence, Emily Thomas, Caroline Reid, Emily Fradiska, and Alexis Lashbaugh.
