School in Newbury Park is getting ready for its fall planting schedule after
receiving 20 bags of Agromin vegetable planting compost from its facility in Oxnard. The school garden is
maintained by students and volunteers under the direction of second grade
teacher Cathy Lewis. It includes different garden types--native plant garden, a
regional garden that focuses on the four regions of California (coast,
mountain, desert and valley), a pollinator garden and a vegetable and herb garden.
The garden is
an integral part of the school’s curriculum that emphasizes environmental
science, technology and outdoor learning. We can't wait to see what they plant!
