Los Vaqueros and Green Our Planet’s partnership to build an additional 7 hydroponic gardens was completed on April 18, 2018. The gardens were delivered to the following schools (in alphabetical order):
John A. Dooley Elementary School
Theron H. & Naomi D. Goynes Elementary School
J.E. Manch Elementary School
Richard J. Rundle Elementary School
Tony Alamo Elementary School
Ulis Newton Elementary School
Virgin Valley Elementary School
The total number of schools participating with Green Our Planet’s hydroponic curriculum as a result of Los Vaqueros’ building the hydroponic gardens is now 17.
These schools have begun using their harvests for chef-to-school demonstrations, occasionally for a Farmer’s Market on campus, and often times they send harvest home with kids in garden clubs or whose class grew the seeds at the beginning. There have been some pretty prolific walls this year!
Special thanks to the Vaqueros who volunteered their time to get the garden built and to Green Our Planet.
