Kirchner Elementary not only teaches their students about nature, they go out and make it happen. With the grand help of campus counselor, Ms. Sonia Tapia, Kirchner has created The Kirchner Community Garden right on their very land. The garden teaches students and the surrounding community about the plant system, gardening, the plant life style, sustainability, environmental studies, hunger and so much more.
Each area of the garden was strategically assigned to different grade levels to plant various vegetables and the land was tilled by a parent volunteer and their own machinery. The seeds were planted during the spring season and now during the course of summer, they all take part in watering and clearing weeds that threaten their harvest. Kirchner is very excited for their students to come back to school and see what they planted has turned into.
Kirchner Elementary would like to express extreme gratitude to all who contributed to the success of their garden, especially the students.
