South Mountain HS Clubs Team Up to Started the Third Garden on Campus

Posted by Community Relations on 1/27/2016

The Recycling and Sustainability Club students, along with our Community Skills students, have started a third garden on campus under the direction of teacher Allison Walden. “Most of these students had never planted anything before but they did such a great job,” Walden said.  “We have one garden growing lettuce, swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, mustard greens and sunflowers, and another where the students are starting seeds and growing cauliflower, peppers, peas, a variety of greens and garlic and they also have roses and a small cactus garden.  In this new one   we are growing radishes, garlic, beets, a variety of greens and prepping for spring veggies like corn, squash and sunflowers.” A portion of the new garden, a box, is also being given to the Little Jags Preschool to grow what they would like, as well.  All of the garden boxes for this new garden were donated to the club by the Burton Family Foundation through Support My Club earlier this year.
