Northern HS is in need of our help.

A teacher at Northern HS sent this to the GC of NC and they forwarded it to us.
If your club is looking for a Garden Therapy project this should be easy. Read the other article about the VA and that Garden Therapy project. I would be happy to discuss this with you and give you the contact person ( Marcia at Heritage). Heritage has too many GT projects and can't do more this year but will work with any club interested in starting this.

It would be a shoo-in for one of the Garden Therapy Awards next year. 
I am a special education teacher at Northern High School in Durham. My class along with the PTO and Durham Water Resources are trying to make an accessible garden for our students who are severely handicapped and to provide a place to develop gardening skills for our less disabled students. I would love to have some input from the clubs as far as which plants we need, possibly donating some cuttings of plants, and any physical assistance as far as getting the garden started would be greatly appreciated. Is this something that would interest a garden club in Durham? IF so, who would I contact? thanks

Thank you for posting this! Any help would be appreciated! I will be going out to the school tomorrow to start with some of the ground work, i.e. cutting trees and installing an electrical outlet. Please let me know if you would like to help out.
