TOWER HILL EDUCATIONAL FUND
Danielle's Garden Educational Fund
Welcome to the Danielle's Garden website
Danielle's Garden is a Barnett family venture. The project is intended to accomplish two objectives. First, there is the desire to create a lasting thing of beauty in the Garden, as a small national treasure. Second, Danielle's Garden is intended to be a funding source for a school for the underprivileged in the immediate vicinity, namely the parishes of St. Mary and St. Ann. As the Garden is in close proximity to the tourist town of Ocho Rios, and not very far from the famous Dunns River Falls, there is much that can be accomplished by utilizing a tourist attraction, such as this, as a funding source in support of a school.
Project work on Danielle’s Garden was started in 1988. All major commissioned works of art for Danielle’s Garden were completed in 1991. After a private family opening in 1991, the formal public opening of Danielle's Garden took place in 1992.
Structure of Danielle's Garden Educational Fund
Phase 1: An endowment fund will serve to provide for the first 5 years of the school's operation. It will exist as a capital account, from which only interest will be drawn to operate the school.
Phase 2: Sums in excess of phase 1 moneys will be used to build the school.
Phase 3: Actual employment of teachers and the functioning of the school will commence, and from phase 1 money the school can continue to grow.
As a charitable venture, individual or foundation contributions are appreciated.
