Thank you After School Club volunteers!!
Thanks to the wonderful, hard working volunteers in the After School Migrant program the Mrs. Isabel Montemayor Memorial Garden is looking good again. Although it is far from complete, the garden is starting to take shape and look good again. We worked one hour after school for nine days! Each day the volunteer/students worked in the garden with enthusiasm, vigor and in respectful cooperative groups. Over the course of our time we covered, some math, soil composition, soil life, reusable materials, some carpentry skills, seed planting, and natural gardening practices (plus a lot of hard work). The volunteers were also participating in school during the morning hours, working on their education. In the afternoon, they would donate an hour of their time to update the Mrs. Isabel Montemayor Memorial Garden to prepare it for the elementary students that will be returning to school this fall.
