Last year, the Gardening Club donated $500 to the Biddeford Primary School Sensory Garden Project. The Garden Ribbon Cutting Event was held on October 20th at the Sensory Garden. While some plantings are still required, the garden is well on its way to completion and will offer students a unique learning experience. Pictured in the slideshow below: At the Podium is Lori Flynn, a second grade teacher who led this project, engaged the community, students and many volunteers who worked to bring the garden to fruition. Four attended the Ceremony from SBGC: Nancy and Tom Bancroft, Bob Dunn and Paul Schlaver.
Additional pictures of this event can be seen on the Biddeford Primary School web site.
SBGC where even more than plants... you'll find friends grow in gardens too!
