Kids Volunteering at the Botanical Center

On Monday October 19, 46 8th grade students from the Pegasus Program at La Salle Academy in Providence volunteered at the Botanical Center. Under the auspices of the URI Master Gardeners' Garden Management crew at the Botanical Center they raked, weeded, mulched and pruned, tidying up the perennial summer garden for the winter. They also used their creative talents painting pumpkins for the Botanical Center’s pumpkin trail. The students placed their pumpkins on the pumpkin trail joining the pumpkins painted on Sunday, October 11 by Botanical Center visitors.
