Knox High School students will continue work on the Serenity Garden project today. The downtown Knox beautification project is on the north side of the intersection of Main Street and Lake Street.
Benches were installed last Saturday, and the concrete was poured to serve as the base of a gazebo. The gazebo will be constructed using split block, concrete, and wood rafters. It nearly mimics the structure at the Eagle Creek Community Church. A red metal roof will top the gazebo. The labor was donated for the concrete work. Additional labor is donated for other aspects of this specific project.
The cost of the gazebo is $6,000, and the cost was picked up with donations from the Starke County Economic Development Foundation and the City of Knox.
Flowers will be planted at the site along with a few trees and plants. Those items were also donated by community businesses.
The students anticipate completing the entire project by the end of the school year.
