The Giving Gardens site at
Ben Franklin Junior High School has received some upgrades, including a beautiful new gate and a raised bed planter on top of flat pavers. SPASH Panthers senior and Ben Franklin alum, Nathan Schultz, is to thank, as these upgrades were the culmination of his Eagle Scout Service Project, for troop 222.
🌱 Nathan chose this site as his service project because of his past experience using the garden in his Culinary Arts class while at Ben Franklin. He knew these upgrades were an important priority for the garden site and wanted to help make space more accessible to more students.
👷‍♂️ Not only did Nathan do all of the construction, but he was completely in charge of every detail, from research and design to construction and managing volunteers. Needless to say, this was no small task and we are honored and grateful to be the recipient of his project.
🙌 Thank you, Nathan, for your time, energy, and service! We look forward to sowing seeds in your honor next Spring!
📣 A BIG shout out to fellow Scouts AND (past and current) Ben Franklin students for your help in the construction: Sam Miskowiak, Matthew Pavelski, Keegan McKinley, Carter Vrieze
