More Log Cabins Articles A community-based school grant is helping to pay for much-needed repairs to flower beds and local garden buildings in the US, it has been reported.
According to BerksmontNews.com, the Learn and Serve Grant has enabled students of Hamburg Area High School in Pennsylvania to erect new pavilion roofs in a local park and help "beautify" gardens in the area.
This included making over neglected flower beds in the school grounds.
"We were renovating primarily two flower beds outside of the cafeteria windows, which weren't touched for five or six years and it had a wooden border edging that was completely overgrown," confirmed teacher Cheryl Bucheit.
"So we went in and tore out the old edging and used the grant money to buy stone to do a retaining wall that the students put in."
The news comes after the Lincolnshire Echo reported last week on an artist's innovative summer house creation at Alford Manor in the UK county which combines a rural setting with modern, metallic materials.
