Something Wonderful Has Sprouted
If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Bonnie Rogers, Penn State Master Gardener, believes this concept applies to the gardening she teaches at the Montessori school.
Today’s feature is about the beautiful gardens around Wellsboro and the woman who encourages others to get involved. As a master gardener, Bonnie loves to teach the skills she has learned through her certification. Under the direction of Pete Harris of Parks and Recreation, she has started what we now know as the Wellsboro Garden Club.
Many of the gardens we enjoy in Wellsboro are cared for by the Wellsboro Garden Club – such as The Green – Mary Wells Statue – and Packer Park to name a few. All of the work done on these gardens is done through the work of these volunteers.
She also teaches the children at the Montessori School. Watch the feature above as they are enjoy the fruit of their labors.
If you would like to join in on the fun – please check out the Wellsboro Garden Club Facebook page or contact Parks and Recreation. If you need advice on gardening, just call the Cooperative Extension Office at 570-724-9120.
Special thanks to the children who participated today – Anthony, Maky, Sienna, Addison, Emily, Karli, Jared, John and their teachers, Valerie Adams & Angel Greenfield.
