May Farm's First Garden
In honor of Becky's birthday 2016, a group
of her friends and family spruced up the
sensory garden at Gower Elementary School in
We had a great time, and the space
was alive with herbs and flowers when we left.
A group led by Lynnette White made a colorful
percussion center. Tracey Eason and team
cleaned play equipment and cleared weeds.
When I revisited the space just recently (May
2017), Mother Nature had taken over, and
weeds and grass were growing rampantly
through the landscape cloth. Most the herbs
were gone, except the lemon balm. The lemon
balm was thriving, as was the lamb's ear.
The play equipment was dirty, and there was
no sand in the sandbox. I went home immedi-
ately and called Ms. Barbara Frazier, principal,
who graciously gave permission for May Farm
to take charge of the garden year-round.
Over the summer we will remove the mulch and
weeds and plant a beautiful garden
