Starting new school gardens

Camarillo Community Garden members, staff and parent from La Mariposa School led a huge work party / educational event Saturday July 31st. The school provided materials and eager students to build a dozen new 8′ x 4′ x 1′ raised garden beds, while we provided guidance to build the beds. A special thanks to Karl for his never-ending enthusiasm and sense of civic duty.

The kids at the school turned out in force. Some of them worked all day and out-lasted their dads. It was a great experience for them to do so much of the work, from digging up sprinkler heads and filling the holes back in, to building the boxes and filling them.
