Five students from Lackawanna Trail High School put the finishing touches on their senior project building a garden for the clients at St. Joseph’s Center. Hunter Crook, Matthew Cole, Victor Mallory and Nicholas Miller. Evan Sandercock was absent from photos. 

The project was the brain child of Nicholas Miller whose half brother, Jeremy Weitz, is a client of the Center. He realized that the clients didn’t have a place where they could go to be enjoy the outside.

The students got together and decided on a plan of action. They decided on flower beds, vegetable garden and  a water feature. The Doug Lacoe and Ron Stacknick from  Dalton Do It Center in Dalton worked hand and hand with the seniors to design wheelchair acceptable tables for the flowers gardens. Corky’s in Clark Summit donated the plants for the flower gardens and the vegetable gardens. Creekside Gardens in Tunkhannock donated a a water feature for the project. All features were designed to help the clients with sight, sound and feel.
