Monday morning was the kick-off of our GARDEN STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM at JOHN ADAMS Middle School led by our Star Garden Stewards Meg and Ben
It was also the beginning of a partnership with CONSERVATION CORPS. They run an after school program lead by Misbran Moradel and implemented on the ground by Ricardo Hernandez; they will water the garden mid week and plan to use the garden for their after school programs and community activities, including cooking and art classes . They were very generous and donated very needed tools for the garden.
We worked with our first class, Ms. Milkumyan 6th grade, planting winter veggies donated by the California Association of Nurseries and Garden Centers. As usual the kids were happy to be outdoors digging and planting, while learning about the importance of healthy soil.
Also at hand were Principal Ms. Wesley and Vice-Principal Mr. Calderon, who are very committed to have all teachers use the garden in their instruction.
Would you like to help this garden blossom? Please donate your time, money or in kind. We need a composter, worm bin, too shed, tables and benches, tools, plants, paint. (Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org)
