Planting the Seeds for Healthy Kids at Eucalyptus Elementary
“I love that the school takes the time to grow so much and teach the kids the importance of gardening and healthy eating, and I love to see the kids harvest the fruits and veggies that were in the garden. My daughter saves the seeds from her fruits and asks me to plant them at her grandma’s house.”
–Joyce Liwanag, Parent, Eucalyptus Elementary School, Hawthorne, CA
