A year’s worth of work is now sprouting beautifully at Rivers Edge Elementary School.
Earlier this month, the school dedicated its new Sensory Garden, which was designed using the input of Rivers Edge students, beginning in 2012. It engages the beholder’s five senses – a section of flowers for sight, an herb garden for taste, a section of plants with different textures to touch, a section of fragrant plants for smelling and a section of wind chimes and music for one’s listening pleasure.
