Sixty kindergarten – third-graders from the Ann Arbor Learning Community Charter School participated in a beautification project at The Residence of Arbor Hospice last month, helping to create a new garden by planting 100 flowers. The garden serves as a peaceful gathering spot for patients and their families. In addition to learning about plant and animal species, the students also spoke with an Arbor Hospice grief support coordinator about death and dying.
The gardening project was made possible by a Greenworks! grant, which matched funds raised by Ann Arbor Learning Community Charter School to purchase the flowers and grasses, as well as seedballs from the Dicken Woods Nature Area, in Ann Arbor.
