WPS Students Work on Pollinator Garden

Students EWorcester Preparatory School recently added raised garden beds and a paver walkway near the tennis courts. The school is in the process of welcoming a new group of pollinators to campus. Students from all divisions have been working on this project and recently Lower School students completed the garden by planting their own beds. Once the garden is finished, it will be dedicated in honor of Kathleen Otway, a cherished member of the WPS community who recently lost her battle with cancer.

Standing behind the students are teachers Abby Harrison and Julia Allison and Story Hill Farm owner Helen Raleigh.
