On Saturday, June 16th, Susan Voigt of the John Clayton Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society thanked Boy Scout Ryan Rivas for making the Stonehouse Elementary Courtyard his Eagle Scout project. Principal Melissa White, and Assistant Principal Noah Greene, were also on hand to personally thank Ryan for his efforts. The John Clayton Chapter provides the stewardship for this National Wildlife Federation Certified Schoolyard Habitat. Susan Voigt expressed the chapter's appreciation for the many hours Ryan spent completing his project's ambitious goals. His work included rebuilding the wooden raised- bed borders, replacing the wooden seats and backs on the benches, adding a new picnic table, and most impressively, replacing the wooden bridge that was the focal point point of the garden.
Renovation of the garden will be ongoing this summer. For more information on tours and scheduled workdays,please contact Sue Voigt: 804-966-8487, email@example.com
