"Let's Grow Together"
The 2023 gardening season is off to a fantastic start. With the help of a generous grant from the West Point Chapter of the Daughters of the United States Army and a bevy of new and returning volunteers, the historical Anna B. Warner gardens are shaping up nicely. With grant money awarded to help educate the community on the gardens, the West Point homeschool families have been invited to participate in the planting, weeding and growing of species specifically mentioned in Anna Warner's 1872 book, "Gardening By Myself." Following an informative introduction, several families have taken advantage of the opportunity to ride the ferry boat from South Dock to the island on Wednesday afternoons. If you would be interested in learning more about Constitution Island or getting involved in the garden program or preserving this slice of rich history, please contact the CIA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
