JWT employees teamed up with Building Goodness and Piedmont Landscape Association (PLA) for City Schoolyard Garden to improve the garden site at Jackson-Via Elementary School by adding varmint protection. The team came out to volunteer their time and know-how on Sunday, November 2. Jackson-Via Elementary has one of the longest standing gardens of the six elementary schools, with eight raised beds and a small native fruit tree orchard. Garden coordinator and landscape architect, Jessica Primm, is responsible for creating a master plan for the 20.6 acre campus that include an edible hedge, woodland trails, a meadow garden, a pollinator garden, and a soon to be completed “owl habitat” meadow in the edge of the big woods on site. Ms. Primm is also President of the PLA.
