The Sanibel School 8th grade class is grateful to Julio Pineda Landscaping for donating their time and resources to re-do the school courtyard landscaping after hurricane damage. The class raised $500 with Dream Vacation Rentals Matching the donation to cover the cost of materials, and Julio Pineda Landscaping donated their labor and the balance of the materials.
The courtyard landscaping is the legacy gift they’re leaving behind for the future students. The students were excited to see the new landscaping, to also be a part of making the courtyard beautiful for upcoming students. The new plant choices include Island native’s such as Green and silver buttonwoods. The students are also grateful for the opportunity to learn about landscaping and to give back to their school community.
