Saturday's Garden Clean Up Was a HUGE Success!!!

On Saturday, September 6th, we had over 40 people attend our annual garden clean up. They turned an area completely overgrown with grass and weeds into an area that is now able to be worked and enjoyed. We will begin using it for instruction this week.

Our next event is on September 20th from 8:30-10:30 am. We will finish cleaning out the beds so that the students can begin planting in them.Please let Ms. Windwehen know if you can attend. If you can come, please bring tools, water, gloves, and wear some clothes that can get dirty!

Mrs. Trevino and Ms. Windwehen want to extend their deepest gratitude to all the volunteers; this program is able to function because of them.

Contact for information about the garden or ways you can volunteer.

The Harris Green Team went on an amazing field trip to Texas State University. They visited gardens, a compost site, greenhouses, and even took a glass bottom boat tour. It was great to see what they learn each day in the garden at school being used somewhere else.
