Symonds School Garden

“Gardens are not made by singing 'Oh, how beautiful!' and sitting in the shade.” - Rudyard Kipling

"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." -Anne Raver
