Carson Street Gardens

On May 6 and 10, 2005, about 65 students and teachers from Phillips Elementary, Arlington Elementary, Bishop Leonard Catholic, and Philip Murray Elementary helped the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy plant three gardens along East Carson Street. They shoveled and dug, and planted and mulched. Thanks to the students' time and effort, gardens will bloom throughout the summer and add to the beauty of main street.

Students from Phillips Elementary School planted the garden at Sarah and East Carson Streets. (The garden was conveniently located near a car wash, so clean-up was easy.) Students from Arlington Elementary planted the parklet at East Carson and South 12th Streets.Students from Bishop Leonard and Philip Murray planted the garden on East Carson between the Birmingham Bridge and South Side Branch of the Carnegie Library. The photos below show the goodwork that was accomplished by all, and how beautifully the gardens bloomed over the summer!
