The Beautification of Evergreen

A former Evergreen student, Nicholas Schoning, restored the garden area outside of the 1st grade and Kindergarten classrooms as a part of his Eagle Scout Project. He added flowers (including perennials that will bloom each spring), cleaned the garden area, trimmed hedges, and added new topsoil and mulch to the flower beds. He also re-established the cinderblocks surrounding the flower beds, repainted the wishing well and garden arbor, and put in three sturdy new benches for all to enjoy.

Nicholas created this beautiful haven as a way to give back to Evergreen. He was involved in the original garden that was created when he was a student at Evergreen and saw this as a great opportunity to do something meaningful and useful. He also wanted to provide a place for teachers to have outdoor classrooms on nice weather days.

Nicholas is presently a junior at the Senior High School. The district thanks him for a job well done!
