Friends of the Garden –


Maintaining a garden and growing our community


Spring is around the corner and green foliage soon will appear in Coolidge High School’s new garden and outdoor classroom.  It will be so exciting to see spring green after our very cold winter.  The expansive garden with its rain garden, shrub beds, memorial garden and other unique features was installed last Fall by many dedicated alumni, neighbors, students and professionals from ASLA, ACE Mentoring, Casey Trees and others.   As in any garden, maintenance is the key to its survival.  


The Coolidge High School Alumni is organizing the Friends of the Garden, a group dedicated to the maintenance of our new garden and outdoor classroom.   If you like to garden, we need your help.  If you don’t know a weed from a perennial, this is your opportunity to learn how to garden and better know your neighbors and friends.   All supplies will be provided.  We just need your time.  Our partners, the Potomac Chapter, ASLA, landscape architects are putting together an extensive maintenance guide to help the Friends of the Garden provide the care that the garden will need.  

If you wish to join the Friends of the Garden, please register by completing the volunteer form below.   You do not need to be alumni to join, neighbors and faculty are welcome.

A Spring Clean Up and Plant It Day has been scheduled for Saturday April, 30, 2011 from 9:00am - 3:00pm.   Hope you will join us and help make Coolidge High School’s new garden a big success.
