JGarden Description:The Chehalem Valley Middle School (CVMS) school opened in 1995 staffed by teachers from the old Springbrook Middle School (now called Mountain View Middle School). It serves approximately 600 students in grades 6-8. The garden grew out of an exchange program with Wadayama Middle School, Wadayama, Hyogo, Japan. Wadayama donated the garden to CVMS in honor of Paul Scmelling, a shop teacher at Springbrook who took a leave of absence to teach in Wadayama, but passed away from lung cancer shortly after returning to Newberg. 




Japan a great stone garden in the sea.
Echoes of hoes and weeding,
Centuries of leading hill-creeks down
To ditch and pool in fragile knee deep fields.
Leafy sunshine rustling on a man
Chipping a foot-square rough hinoki beam;
I thought I heard an axe chop in the woods
It broke the dream; and woke up dreaming on a train.
It must have been a thousand years ago
In some old mountain sawmill of Japan.
A horde of excess poets and unwed girls
And I that night prowled Tokyo like a bear
Tracking the human future
Of intelligence and despair.
