Bryan Station Middle School Host Site For Green Apple Day Of Service

Sep 28, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Volunteers and students will spend Saturday morning making landscaping improvements to Bryan Station Middle School as part of the U.S. Green Building Council’s first annual Green Apple Day of Service.  The campus on Wickland Drive has been selected as the Pilot Site in Fayette County for the event.

Tresine Logsdon is FCPS Energy and Sustainability Curriculum Coordinator.

“We’ve also gotten some donations of some plants that we’re putting in around campus so we are sort of dressing up the front retaining wall that you see as soon as you walk onto Bryan Station Middle School’s campus.  We’re also doing some landscaping around the flagpole, and carpool line as well….so some general landscape improvements. "

Logsdon says the major task at hand is the installation of three raised garden beds.

“They wanted some vegetable gardens that they eventually want to use as a community garden with the neighborhoods and the neighbors in the area.  And so Locust Trace AgriScience Farm, which is one of our career and technical education schools here in Fayette County Public Schools…those students built three raised beds that we we’re installing on Saturday.”

Work gets under way Saturday morning at 10.
