After six years of gracing the exterior of the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, the garden created and nurtured by members of the DHS Environmental Club finally has an identity.

With the financial support of the Rotary Club of Davis, along with some Rotarian-powered shovels, the DHS Environmental Club Garden has a new sign worthy of the garden’s abundant natural beauty.

The garden was the brainchild of DHS graduate Kevin To when he was still a student in the fall of 2006. He enlisted the Environmental Club to create a garden similar to the one he remembered from his years at Emerson Junior High. With the help of local Master Gardener Patricia Carpenter and Three Palms Nursery, ground was broken in the fall of 2007.

Funding was provided by a grant from the state of California, the DHS PTA and the Davis Farm to School Connection. The garden is maintained by members of the DHS Environmental Club under the director of club adviser Sherri Sandberg-Ransom, who is also a DHS science teacher.

Members of the Rotary Club of Davis have been creating, funding and supporting community projects in Davis since 1926. The club meets Mondays at noon at the Davis Community Church Fellowship Hall, 421 D St. More information on the club, including how to join, is available at www.rotaryclubofdavis.com.
