Updates at Marshall

Its been a long and busy spring at Marshall High School. We have had what it seems like a never ending squirrel problem in our garden. After figuring out how to keep the squirrels out of the beds from eating all our plants, they started chewing through the irrigation. But that did not stop us! We seize the problem as opportunity and took a field trip to home depot and this time fix the irrigation with PVC pipe, hopefully more durable against these crazy squirrels.

Michelle studied Recreation and Tourism Management at CSUN and got her start in the garden world at M.E.N.D., a poverty relief nonprofit.

By showing kids where their food comes from and how we are connected to our food we ultimately our reconnecting or minds and bodies, something many of us forget to do in our fast paced environment.
