Students of Incarnation School in Glendale conducted a garden planting project in its campus on May 28 with assistance from the Glendale Community Development Dept. and the Committee for a Clean & Beautiful Glendale. The garden planting was at the site of a large tree the school lost during the November windstorms in 2011.
Through the valuable and persistent efforts of sixth grader Francesca Legaspi, the student council commissioner of Ecology, the City of Glendale agreed to provide soil, plants, flowers, vegetables, herbs and seeds along with three small raised garden beds as an extension to its 25th Annual Great American Clean Up celebration.
Incarnation School’s science teacher Juana Salazar assisted in the garden planting and used the process to encourage and teach students to cultivate and maintain garden plants, a valuable lesson in sustainable living.
