We recently visited Lee Elementary School in Los Alamitos to
see how its garden and landscaping were coming along. A few months ago, parents
and staff rebuilt the school garden as part of a modernization project of the school
and began sprucing up the school's landscaping.
What a difference! Renee Keeler's 2nd graders planted a wonderful garden with all kinds of vegetables
and flowers. They planted
everything you can think of: lettuce, carrots, kale, radishes, sunflowers,
corn, tomatoes all kinds of peppers, cucumbers and even marigolds and other "natural" pest control flowers. Pumpkins will go in next month!
Drought-tolerant landscaping is also filling out nicely.
Agromin is always happy to help schools create their gardens
by providing organic garden soil. Gardens are great teaching tools. Students
learn about the growth cycle of food, conservation as well as responsibility
and the value of hard work
