Club visits student garden
LOWER LAKE >> The Clear Lake Trowel and Trellis Garden Club visited the student garden at Lower Lake. The garden program is taught by Lisa Rogers, Environmental Science and Gardening teacher to all K-7 students at Lower Lake Elementary School.
The group entered the garden by ducking through a wire trellis with low hanging gourds that may end up as future art projects. The children were sitting around a bench getting ready to make holiday decorations out of sticks and ribbon. All were quite enthusiastic and welcomed the club with a “thank you” banner and a “flower” fan with words of appreciation. Club members were then given a tour of the school by Rogers and students Alee and Regan of their vegetables, flowers and herb gardens. They also received a presentation by Jaxson of the block raised bed that his dad built.
All of the children were quite proud of their achievements. When asked what part of the gardening they liked best, they said “all of it”.
