Curtis Scoggins | The Man Behind Skyview Harmony Garden

Skyview Harmony Garden does not exist without Curtis Scoggins. When Skyview's PTA President first brought up the idea of building a school garden, Skyview teacher Karen Scoggins mentioned that her husband, a prominent local landscape architect, might be able to assist in drawing up a plan. That initial phone call, now over a year ago, snowballed into an enormous volunteer collaboration. 

Scoggins not only created the initial layout, which launched fundraising and community buy-in, but he also made material and labor resources available to Skyview. Scoggins worked tirelessly to lay in the garden and act as project manager on site during construction. He organized deliveries, talked with district approved vendors and was religiously on site to oversee the process of installation. 

Skyview Harmony Garden owes an unending debt of gratitude to Curtis Scoggins. He is the man of the hour and a hero to Skyview Students. Curtis, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your work on the Skyview Harmony Garden will change the lives of thousands and thousands of children in the Lake Highlands community. Your legacy at Skyview resides now in the bones of the school and the life blood of its students. You are forever in our hearts. Thank you. 

Mr. Scoggins and his beautiful family at the ground breaking.

  1. It looks like a brilliant event. All photos look so adorable. At some domestic lofty spaces we will also be hosting a fun outdoor party on our daughter’s birthday. We need some interesting eco-friendly ideas for this party. Could you provide any ideas?
