|Parents At Work|
Lee Elementary School parents, staff, and other volunteers
were busy digging trenches this month to rebuild their school gardens. The
gardens were part of the school grounds that were demolished during a yearlong
modernization project for the school in Los Alamitos. Renee Keeler, 2nd grade
teacher and avid gardener, always includes components of science and organic
gardening as her students work in the garden. She is a strong believer of the
"from earth to earth" recycling process--good soil means good food,
which we compost to make good soil--that then goes back to the earth.
Agromin donated seven cubic yards of organic garden soil to
fill the garden beds that Mrs. Keeler's classes will plant, cultivate and
harvest throughout the year. The gardens are a huge hit with students, staff
and parents and are a welcome returning sight to the school.
