slide23.pngArgonaut High School students may have a lot to look forward to come spring: Plans are underway to break ground on an impressive new school garden. The Special Education and Science Departments both applied for a California Department of Education grant last spring. In December, the departments learned that they would be awarded funding totaling 5,000 dollars.
“We are very excited to set forth our plans to provide our students with a hands-on learning environment,” says Gail VonWald, a special education teacher at Argonaut High. She hopes the school garden will open up a world of exploration for the students. The benefits of the garden could reach beyond the school year – with enough public interest, VonWald has offered to teach gardening classes this summer. Those facilitating the garden are seeking interested members of the public to join a Garden Advisory Committee that will help oversee long-term plans for the garden. Interested individuals are encouraged to call VonWald at 257-7713.
