Organic Garden at HMS - Ecology Club


In February 2015, we planted an organic garden on campus between Room 14 & 20. The plants were purchased from Torrance Farmer's Market and a lot were donated by a parent. The Ecology Club students would help with maintaining the garden. They did everything from harvesting, planting, weeding, pruning, watering, and putting mulch down. 

The students want to expand the garden this year by adding raised garden beds and get a larger variety of veggies & fruits.
