Sharon Hammel Garden

Our Sharon Hammel Garden, named after Seattle Girls’ School Founder, was completed in the 2013-2014 school year through generous donations and many volunteer hours. The project includes a vegetable garden, wildflower garden, rain garden, and green house. The garden not only beautifies our campus, but it serves many purposes including a backdrop for curriculum and a place for students to gather outside.

Here’s a look at what it took to complete our garden:

  • 68 volunteers
  • 470 adult volunteer hours and many student volunteer hours during lunch and advisory time
  • 61 cubic yards of soil, compost, and mulch, which is equivalent to 275 wheelbarrow loads
  • 3 trips to the RE Store and way too many trips to Lowe’s and Home Depot
  • 5 Craigslist transactions
