The students at Mesa View Middle School in Huntington Beach
couldn't wait to "get their hands dirty" this week.
received a donation of 5 cubic yards of premium organic garden soil from
Agromin for the school’s planter beds on Tuesday morning. Students,
along with volunteer and former teacher Linda Morris, shoveled, spread and
worked the organic soil into 5’x10’ planters in preparation for winter garden
The students will finish leveling the soil and then plant
pole and bush beans, broccoli, kale, cabbage, raddichio, kale and other
types of winter vegetables.
Nearly every student has a garden at home so the students are
serious about gardening. Last school year, the students made salads and
peach cobblers from their school’s early summer harvest right before summer
