Glen Burnie, MD (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
Include Software’s Nanette Seven recently participated in the unveiling of the new Learning Gardens and landscaping at Waugh Chapel Elementary School in Odenton, MD. In April, a complete landscape overhaul was done with donated labor, materials, and landscape design.
Donations were made by the following companies:
- Include Software (landscape management software) http://www.include.com
-Nemetschek North America (Vectorworks landscape design software)
-Live Green Landscape Associates (labor)
-Belgard Hardscape (brick pavers)
-Patuxent Nurseris (soil, mulch, etc.)
-Country Springs Wholesale Nurseries (plants at cost)
-PLANET, Professional Landcare Network (professional organization to which above vendors belong)
The work included installing a brick walkway and park benches, and creating six Learning Gardens, one for each grade, K-5. In addition to ornamental plantings, the gardens include fruit and vegetable plants to help provide nutritious food to less fortunate students.
With no school funds available to replace 42-year old playground equipment, a committee of parents and volunteers created a plan to raise $120,000 and improve the school’s appearance at the same time. They created a Buy A Brick campaign, selling bricks for $100 and $200, as well as park benches for $1,500. The landscaping was performed as part of this overall effort. To date, the group has reached 1/3 of its goal, and expects the new landscaping to inspire additional donations.
