Spring Cleaning: Raking up the yew hedge at the Kelleher Rose Garden

by Alex

In the beginning of April, we cleaned up the Kelleher Rose Garden. We were asked to clear the beds of the yew hedges to prevent the infestation of rabbits that inhabit the garden. Tuesday we were aided in our efforts by volunteers from Boston Latin School. In their school, they take Environmental Science as an elective and are required to do four hours of volunteer service. The student I worked with told me that he has a job working with the swan boats. He said he had thought his job was bad until he finished working with us for day; we both looked at the scratches on our arms and laughed. It’s funny though, many of the other members reported that they saw rabbits, while we had not seen even one rabbit.
