“Flower Garden” Moved to Kadonowaki Elementary School’s Front

On March 29-30, JEN worked on moving a flower garden as part of “Flower Garden Movement“ project started with the wish of Kadonowaki Junior High School students the year before.

【Many students volunteered to help, despite their spring vacation.】

In good weather, the moving work was lucky enough to mobilize large group of people including 50 students, 43 volunteers and parents and their children who are members of a local sports club.

Some 800 viola seedlings were drug out and put into a plastic bag one by one, and then carried to Kadonowaki Elementary School in many batches, their new habitat.

【Tulip bulbs and a big signboard were also carried.】

Kadonowaki town starts a land preparation for new town and its redemarcation project from fiscal year 2014. The project is supposed to begin in earnest after consecutive holidays in May and the site of the flower garden is also subject to it; therefore the moving has taken place. On the second day, participants totaled 40, students and volunteers, despite the rain, completing the moving. Thanks to the efforts of many people, the moving has been done successfully.

【The transplanted flowers looked as if they have been there for years.】

Ms. Seika Sakurai, a first-year student in Kadonowaki Junior High School, told us her feelings of her volunteer work saying “It was a lot of fun!; the project started when my sister was my age, so I hope we can continue it as a good tradition.”

Long winter has gone and you can feel the coming of spring in Ishinomaki. The flowers will be at their best soon. We will let you know on Facebook or Twitter as soon as they come out and so we invite you to join us.
