We now have a school garden as another bonus that our school provides to the students. The collaboration of the school district, school staff and parent volunteers created this special space for vegetables to grow and for students to explore. We are proud to have transformed an unused blacktop area into a garden full of edible plants that will help instill the passion for all of us to learn the benefits of a garden.
We broke ground in the Fall of 2011 and thankfully our dedicated volunteers constructed beds and added special soil along with many extra details so we can start our garden with the highest standards. The district had cut the asphalt for each garden box and provided a new fresh water line along with three hose bibs so our garden would not use the normal grey water irrigation that is used on the playing fields. We intend for this garden to be used as an educational tool where the teachers and students can have a growing space to introduce gardening into their curriculum.
We are grateful for community businesses and donors that contributed to our garden.
