What an amazing day of planting, cleaning, and gardening! Students learned about ways to use baking soda and vinegar as cleaning supplies instead of harmful chemicals. They cleaned up our school grounds and Hamilton Run. Our raised garden beds and our wetlands have many new plants that are looking amazing.
The work the students have completed is fantastic but none of this would have been possible without the help from our many volunteers. We would like to thank everyone that was involved: Antietam Tree and Turf, William G. Bowen, Chesapeake Wildlife Heritage, Mr. Egger and the other volunteers from the Navy, Rentals Unlimited, The Home Depot, Hicksville Planing Mill, the O'Farrell family, Mrs. Ghattas, Mr. Karkan, and all of the other volunteers that helped to make our day a success.
