A Green Space of their Own Bonner and Prendie, how does your garden grow? With help from Stacey and Sean McNicholl, master green thumbs at Monsignor Bonner & Archbishop Prendergast High School’s new community garden. Stacey and Sean, who together run the sustainable agriculture organization GreenHorn Gardens, are cultivating a plot of land outside Delaware County Hospital on Lansdowne and Huey Avenues in Upper Darby, along with help from school volunteers, alumni, and community members. After spending summer 2018 building the infrastructure and getting a few crops in the ground, the two grow-pros are ramping up to a full-length season of produce. We spoke to them about their experience and what’s next for the project. 3
