Berlin, MD – Worcester Prep students, staff and volunteers braved wind and rain to build a new Pollinator Garden on campus.
On Saturday, April 1, student volunteers Isabella Huber, Vanesska Hall, Sydney Tingle, Jenna Hess, Travis Netting, Tyler Netting and Ted Timmons broke ground on Worcester Prep’s pollinator garden. The students were assisted by Assistant Head of School/Head of Upper School, Mr. Mike Grosso; Head of Lower School, Dr. Sara Timmons and husband, Andy; Director of Development, Mrs. Amy Tingle; and Lower School Spanish teacher, Mrs. Amanda Nettings and husband, Doug.
The students and volunteers installed 4 flower beds, and the initial paver walkway surrounding the center garden bed. Located by the school’s existing raised flower beds, the Pollinator Garden will offer five-8x4 garden beds, with each class in the 1st through 5th grade designing a 4x4 section. The garden is designed to attract and support Monarch butterflies, but also many of the species on the Maryland critical watch list. This project was made possible by a generous anonymous donation from a WPS family.
