Apple Orchard nursery school planting. May 11, 2011.Patch.com, a community web site, and the Attleboro Sun Chronicle featured students from the Elisabeth Amen Nursery School planting apple trees in the two-year-old Murphy Apple Orchard behind the Presidents’ House in the spring. With the help of Wheaton students Eric Christensen ’13 and Lewis Alfano ’14, the youngsters added 14 trees, purchased using a $500 grant from the National Gardening Association and Jamba Juice. The nursery school, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary, is affiliated with the Wheaton psychology department.
