The Peace Wall Memorial Garden at Sanfordville needs your help

A day of gardening planned for Sunday, June 12 Warwick - Following the Sept. 9 attacks, students in the Sanfordville Elementary School PIE (Partners in Education) Program established and built a Peace Wall Memorial Garden on school grounds. Beverly Braxton, a PIE teacher who is now retired, spearheaded the project and helped support it over the years. The Peace Wall Memorial Garden is currently in need of volunteers to help weed, trim, spread mulch and apply pebbles to the pathways. A day of peace and gardening is planned for Sunday, June 12, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and volunteers are needed. Mulch will be dropped off at the site, but bags of pebbles and ground cloth cover to discourage weeds are needed. A long-term project involves designing a system using wind power from the planned wind turbine to draw water from the adjacent pond to fill the garden’s fountains. As with many such incredible ideas, the garden needs continued support. Hopefully, a Peace Wall Memorial Garden Club can be established, with sponsors, whose members are willing to grow and maintain the garden on a regular basis. If you are able to assist with time, materials, and/or continued support, please contact Beverly at
