Centennial High School Gets New Pergola

Centennial High School Gets New Pergola

The Environmental Club at Centennial High School started a campus garden and outdoor learning area five years ago. "The Rock Garden" is named for two large boulders in the area. Thanks to the fund-raising efforts of the students, the grassy area has grown to include nine raised vegetable beds, fruit trees and shrubs.

Michael Joseph, a project manager with MOSAIC Group [Architects and Remodelers], recently volunteered his time and expertise to help build an attractive pergola to mark the entrance to The Rock Garden. MOSAIC Group also provided supplies for the construction project.

The nearly 50 students who are members of the Environmental Club raised funds from paint recycling events to purchase the Lawn Master do-it-yourself kit from Home Depot.

Centennial High School is located off Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell. The club sponsor is Julie Burroughs, a math/TAG teacher. Additional assistance is provided by Anne Kennedy, a master gardener and parent volunteer.
