Community Volunteers At Work!

In May and June, the Living Classroom native habitat and edible gardens at Theuerkauf School in Mountain View reaped the benefits of volunteers from Google and the Mountain View Rotary Club. Volunteers cleared the edible garden beds, added new, rich soil, and installed top notch drip emitter irrigation tubing to allow for planting of warm season fruits and vegetables for the Farm to Lunch Program. Others built a new garden shed and cut back invasive ivy. Dozens of volunteers also planted 150 plants, installed 23 plant signs, installed drip irrigation lines, and spread mulch for the expanded native habitat garden. A big thank you to Google and the Mountain View Rotary Club for their huge help and making the gardens bigger, better and more beautiful for the students and staff at Theuerkauf School.
