RCP Annual Springtime Garden Work Party (pics)

Hello! Ms. Sarah here to let you know that on Saturday April 16th, Richmond College Prep held it's Annual Springtime Garden Work Party. It was a wonderful day of sunshine and participation from every corner of RCP and the larger community. The Trachtenberg Family who designed and built the Grandpa Allen Learning Garden were there to build and install the new garden entrance. Made of wire and tires, this lovely doorway invites all to come learn and explore, smell the flowers and taste the many organic vegetables grown by our students. At the same time, our teachers and students from Saturday School and many parent volunteers came with their kids to help. Both groups went crazy with the weeding and cleaning up of the thriving plants thanks to El Nino!

Julie Trachtenberg organized a large group of students from The Academy of Art College in San Francisco to come and they helped so much, painting tires, weeding, and planting. Many other friends and family of Ms. Sarah's came, facilitating an arts and crafts corner with the making of Gods eyes, and planting the many starters grown and donated in the Assembly Restaurant Greenhouse here in Richmond.

At noon came lunch, cooked up by the Viveros Family, a healthy lunch of tamales, beans and rice, salad and fruit, horchata and tea. YUM! Thank You! After lunch, the Prado Family worked hard fixing up the chicken coop recently acquired by RCP. Some city folks came planting trees on the outside medians around the school, making it an even more healthy and beautiful place to live and work and learn. Thank you! All in all we had over 100 people come and I want to thank everyone for your hard work and enthusiasm, and invite anyone who wants to come the next time. Thank you!

Sincerely, Ms. Sarah- Garden Educator
