The weather this weekend was perfect for the opening of Joan Mallon’s Cape Cod Garden at Monkstown Educate Together National School. This was Joan’s first solo garden project and she won a silver medal at the Bloom Festival this year! Her garden design was inspired by the creative and romantic gardening styles that she saw on her trip to Boston and Cape Cod in June 2013. After seeing this garden at MENTS I can say you do feel like you are in Cape Cod when you are looking at it!
Thanks to the help of Joan, Jennie, Anne Marie, Rosario, Parent Volunteers and most of all PUPILS of METNS for making the replanting of Cape Cod Escape at MENTS possible! MENTS has a Green School Status and uses its other garden to teach kids about the environment. I am excited that MENTS has agreed to take care of the garden and as a fellow educator I am glad that students will be able to use it as a resource!
Again, congratulations to Joan Mallon on her accomplishments at Bloom Festival and I am delighted that MENTS is able to use her beautiful garden as a resource to teach kids about the environment.
