The rains have been great for the gardens but can also cause some unwanted guests. Fortunately at El Sereno Elementary the students love burning some energy on pulling misplaced grass and keeping the garden tidy. A lesson on medicinal properties of herbs was followed by fresh mint lemonade sweetened with local honey; staying ontop of ailments is the path to a healthier life.
