At El Sereno Elementary the students used containers that they received and discarded daily to create the perfect containers for starting seeds. One man’s trash is a seed’s new home. Teaching the students to reclaim materials and give them a second purpose helped them realize they have the tools they need to start their own gardens, even in the smallest of spaces. A spent cilantro plant full of ladybugs and their larva was great for diminishing the aphid population on the cauliflower.
