Funding is requested for a portion of a "start up" project of beautifying a barren area of the school ground that is presently unused and is often trashed. The area measures some 50 X 100 feet and has three small trees and 3 old benches and an old table. It is currently an eyesore as people walk through it and toss their trash.
