The garden seating and insutructional areas at West Vernon Elementary were brightened up by volunteer garden helpers. Pollinators arent the only ones that appreciate vibrant colors.
The students learned how to help the garden with compost; nothing wasted. A peak into their compost bin illustrated how the beans they tasted (but may not have liked) can be turned into food for plants.
