We celebrated the Grand Opening of the Brand-New PDSD Accessible Garden on Saturday.

Enthusiastic participants rolled up their sleeves and got their hands dirty as they joined forces to plant seedlings and mark a memorable day.

A remarkable contribution was made by the dedicated Girl Scouts from Troops 7073 and 558. These young leaders took on significant responsibilities, leading the charge to bring the PDSD Accessible Garden to life. Troop 7073 skillfully crafted elevated wooden garden boxes, while Troop 558 added vibrant splashes of color by meticulously hand-painting each box. This collective effort didn’t go unnoticed – the Scouts proudly earned the esteemed Silver Award, the highest honor for a Cadette in the Girl Scouts.

The attention to detail was astonishing – not only did the Girl Scouts from Troops 7073 and 558 paint the garden boxes by hand, but they also took on the task of adorning the surrounding rocks with their creative designs. This artistic touch added an extra layer of charm to the new garden space.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated volunteers and generous supporters who made this endeavor possible. A special shoutout to Lowes, Gonzalez Asphalt Company, and Riggs for their invaluable contributions. Witnessing such a harmonious collaboration to enhance PDSD’s beauty and accessibility for students and staff is truly inspiring.

The PDSD Accessible Garden has blossomed into a testament to what can be achieved when the community comes together. This space now radiates with the love and care poured into it by everyone involved – making it an inviting haven for all to enjoy. 🌹❤️☀️🌻🪴
