i am EXCITED. hey, what's new, i know but this has really got me good. i subscribe to a master gardeners mailing list and they recently sent me a link to a bunch of schools in LA County that have school gardens. most are far from my casa, but one dear friends is in my backyard- LONG BEACH! Los Cerritos Elementary School to be exact.
i contacted the garden coordinator/teacher behind the project who also happens to be a master gardener. she said she'd LOVE extra help so i'm now in the process of filling out my school volunteer application as well as getting my required TB test. what fun it will be to not only work with the munchkins but teach them about gardening and growing your own food. YEE HAW!
