"Dorothy Grant Elementary School, Fontana, California - Garden Project"

   

The DGES Teachers, PTA, Volunteers and Students focus on the Garden Projects success. The dream is to have a reading area dedicated for the kids. The garden area was over grown with weeds until some dedicated parents and kids decided to do something about it.

 

The project started with clearing the area from weeds, creating a design for the garden and then installing a water control system. The kids have now started placing stones to make walkways and installing plants. I'm pleased to be a sponsor and supporter of the DGES Garden Project.
