The Fort Scott Community College Masonry program was asked by the Everybody Plays Committee, a task force of the City of Pittsburg Parks and Recreation Department, to build a sensory garden structure at Schlanger Park in Pittsburg, Ks.
The students spent part of the semester doing just that. They measured the groundwork out, laid the blocks, helped pour the concrete and filled in the dirt for the garden.
Once everything is set and ready to go, In The Garden will plant flowers and plants that attract butterflies and add sensory elements for the community to enjoy the beauty. The sensory garden is fully accessible for all to partake in the experience.
“The committee was so pleased to be able to offer local students this opportunity for a real-life experience,” says Barbara Herbert.
If you would like a brick paver to be placed in the garden please contact Pittsburg Parks and Recreation at 620-231-8310.
