“Dejah Powell returned to John Vanderpoel Humanities Academy Friday to build a community garden alongside students at her elementary school alma mater. Some 50 students filled planter boxes with wood chips and soil, planted seedlings and created a community gathering place at the school at 9510 S. Prospect Ave. in Beverly. Powell, a Hyde Park resident, secured the funding for the project. She landed several grants to pay for the $8,000 garden on the southeast corner of the campus. The funding also includes classes to teach students about urban gardening.
