December 14th is the kick-off work day of our new partnership with the San Carlos School District!
Together, we are working to infuse urban agriculture and native gardening throughout the schools in support of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum as well as to support the district’s emphasis on social and environmental justice.
On December 14th, we will be working at Arundel Elementary School to rejuvenate and expand the school’s native pollinator garden (there’s no gardening without pollinators!), rehabilitate and plant three existing 14×6’ raised garden beds with winter vegetables, install an Herb and Citrus Garden in the heart of campus, and plant native plants and wildflowers throughout campus to mitigate erosion and provide a habitat for native pollinators. We will also be expanding the Kindness Rock Garden so that current students have the opportunity to paint rocks with their own positive thoughts to inspire the community. In the future, we will be building an outdoor learning center as well as planting a Friendship Orchard.
We are so excited to work with San Carlos School District and the Arundel Elementary community. If you are available this Saturday morning and interested in volunteering, sign up to volunteer with Each Green Corner here. Waivers and session selection are available after you register.
Also, we want to give a huge “Thank you!” to Hobee’s for generously donating their delicious coffee cake to fuel our volunteers all morning long! #hobeesinthecommunity
