Soon to bloom: DAR plants dogwoods at Oak Hill School

From STAFF REPORTS

Spring is in the air and it seems new life is bursting forth after a long winter, like the Dogwood trees that now call the front of Oak Hill School in Jonesborough home.

In the fall, as part of their participation in the Tennessee Daughters of the American Revolution Conservation Committee’s native tree planting project, the local State of Franklin Chapter of the DAR planted two native pink dogwoods, which are soon to bloom this spring. 

The DAR decided on a site close to the sign out front of Oak Hill School, which tells the history of the building. The school is also the location of the DAR’s annual Constitution Week Bell-Ringing event held each September.

The DAR also met with Tuesday Garden Club Members Nancy Rhea and Nancy Trivett at the Library Garden to plant a second tree.

The site chosen is close to the right rear of the building and should provide beauty and seasonal color to that side of the garden. 

The Jonesborough community garden is maintained by local Tuesday Garden Club members along with FFA students from Davy Crockett High School.
