Students have been involved with the whole process of planting from seed and transplanting to harvesting the fruits of their labor.

Watch for online sign-ups on the capripta.com site or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping in the garden. You can also chat with your child's classroom teacher to see if there are opportunities to help.
