I thank Myrna Meehan who retired from Winding Springs Elementary. When she was principal, they built an “International Garden,” with each garden representing an area of the world. There are several weekends a year when volunteers, teachers, students and family come and put down new soil, mulch and plant new plants. The older children do the weed control. Each garden is labeled either countries or areas of the world, and the plants that grow in the gardens are from that particular area. The school community still keeps the International Garden going.
