Plains in Sumter County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Each year students from the school participate in "Garden days," when they pruned, trimmed, cleaned and improved the garden. Included in the plantings were azaleas, forsythia, junipers, japonicas, cedars, daffodils, tulips, lilacs, and roses. In the early years of the garden, a bed or iris formed the letters P.H.S.
Friendship Garden became a focal point for both students and residents. Like many of Miss Julia Coleman's projects, it joined school and community in a hands-on educational venture marked by industry and love. A county newspaper reported, "Friendship Garden is more than a mere garden. It is a sacred spot."
