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.

Check out the video of the day’s doings…
