Come see the Riverside Vegetable garden!

 

Come on over to see the gorgeous new vegetable garden at Riverside! Generously funded by the PTA and built by Jim Charling (grandfather of 2nd grader Eric), with assistance from Aaron Charling (Eric’s dad), the new garden is ready to grow! This new garden design enables a full class to fit and work, learning all the wonders of planting seeds and seeing them grow and produce vegetables and herbs. The garden is now made up of two long rows of beds on either side so that the children have space to move in between without tripping on each other.
