Volunteers Needed to Spread Mulch and De-Weed Beds

Parents and community members,

We need your help spreading mulch in the garden and de-weeding some flower beds. All the rain is such a blessing, but the weeds are coming back with a  vengeance. If you can help at any time that is convenient for you, please email

Also, we are in need of small planting containers (4 inch plastic pots).. LOTS of them.. if you know of anyone that has any or are willing to ask companies for donations, please contact us!

Thank you to San Antonio Fire Department, Engine 19!

We could not be more grateful for the volunteerism displayed by Mr. Davila and his team! They spent a considerable amount of time assembling two 80 gallon composters for us, transporting them to the school, and then came up to our school to make sure they were positioned perfectly in the garden.

Enjoy some photos of this huge task they completed for our students!

Spring Garden Clean Up a Success

Harris Garden Involves KINS Program in Gardening

The Harris Garden welcomed about 20 students outside to tour the garden and explain the opportunities they had to be involved in such an incredible space. 

They also replanted the beds at the front entrance to the school to prepare for our Wellness Fair. 

They did a great job, and are excited about more ways they can learn outside.
