CV Garden Beds

“A garden requires patient labor and attention.  Plants do not grow  to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions.  They thrive because someone expended effort on them.” –Liberty Hyde Bailey

Cub Scout Thomas Cruse designed and built the garden beds as a project to earn his Eagle Badge. It was remarkable to watch how it all came together.  Thank you, Thomas!

The staff and students at CV planted seeds last spring and have continued to care for them over the summer.  What a beautiful testimonial to living the attributes of the IB learner profile as students and staff demonstrate this set of dispositions outside the school day.
