When Eagle Scout Candidate Sean Kelly had to complete a service project to complete his rank, he went back to middle school.
This former student of West Deptford Middle School always knew that the school garden could be so much more than it was. Wanting to create a place to relax, study, and educate students, Kelly decided upon a total transformation of the space. His plan includes butterfly and herb gardens, patio pavers and new garden beds.
Determined to see this through for his middle school, Kelly researched resources, had plans drawn up, and typed letters to send out to local companies for donations.
EP Henry responded through its HeroScaping® program and worked with Kelly do have 600 square feet of their Historic Brickstone dropped off at his middle school alma mater on April 23, 2015.
Community volunteers and West Deptford Troop 295 members are joined forces to make this special garden for the students.
These after photos show just how this once unusable courtyard has been transformed into a lovely outdoor garden for the children.
