Learn­ing about na­ture, gar­den­ing

Springfield Sun - - COMMUNITY -

or­ris­town Gar­den Club mem­bers Eve­lyn Ran­dolph and Marge Eberz, with the “al­ways” help of Eve­lyn’s hus­band Hamp Ran­dolph, ro­totilled and read­ied the beds in the Court­yard at the Mar­shall Street School so that the chil­dren could en­joy learn­ing how to plant their pump­kin and sun­flower seedlings. Then, Eve­lyn Ran­dolph, chair of this com­mit­tee, Dot­tie Mac­der­mott, Barb Sch­midt, Trina Bayne and Ruth Sil­ver in­structed, “dis­cov­ered,” weeded, shov­eled, tended to “Tippy” the tur­tle, nur­tured an in­jured bird, found lots of worms, peeked in at a baby bird in its nest and planted many va­ri­eties of an­nu­als much to the de­light and fun of the chil­dren of Ellen Rai­eta’s class. – Sub­mit­ted by Ruth­marie Brooks Sil­ver
