Central School Flower Garden

Central Garden

Jajuan Hoskins is pictured with the Central School flower garden. Jajuan was in charge of the flower garden for the last two summers. He did a fabulous job keeping it watered and weeded.

This is the twentieth year for the garden. The garden was started twenty years ago when Beth Hanson from Hanson's Garden Village was in 5th grade at Central School. The Hanson family has continued to help each year with the planning, the delivery of the flowers, and the caretaking of the garden.

Each year, students are asked to come up with a theme for the garden. It usually ends up being some combination of student ideas, the input of staff, and the garden expertise of the Hanson's.
