Accotink Garden Group

Accotink’s garden serves as a transition from the mundane world into sacred space. It’s an expression of the UU Seventh Principle: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” Our garden is a wildlife habitat, as certified by the National Wildlife Federation and we are always in need of help to maintain this beautiful space.

Improvements Coming to Accotink’s Nearly Native Garden

Hello, my name is Jackson Tomasco, and I am a member of Boy Scout Troop 1965 and Accotink Unitarian Universalist Church. I’ve been planning with Accotink’s Garden Committee to conduct an Eagle Scout project in Accotink’s Nearly Native Garden. With help and donations from Accotink’s congregation, I aim to raise money to purchase the materials required to construct an edging wall along with the path leading out of the back of the church, as well as plants needed to plant in the garden bed along the same path.

I aim to create a beautiful spectacle for churchgoers to see and enjoy every Sunday morning. This project will be a great addition to our Nearly Native Garden and will reflect the hard work and long hours our garden volunteers put in to establishing our beautiful garden.  – Jackson Tomasco
