The Herb Garden was installed in the summer of 2009 by students from Providence Day School in Charleston, North Carolina.
As part of a senior class trip to Cape Cod, the school’s principal introduced a day of community service to the trip agenda. In collaboration with AmeriCorps Cape Cod, seventy students completed projects for the Farm during a day of service.
For the Herb Garden project, students removed sod; then raked, screened and amended the soil. Working from a graphed garden design, they placed, planted, mulched and watered herb plants donated by a local nursery.
The herb garden has matured and thrived in its sunny location in front of the Farm’s greenhouse. New herb varieties are added each year.
