Inspired by her schoolyard habitat at Garcia Middle School, an 8th grade student wrote the following poem:
The Garden is Magical
The garden is magical in every which way,
Go there and release stress on any needed day.
The garden is magical go there and clear your mind,
Looking for peace the garden shall surely find.
The garden is magical a place for peace,
Once you get there your problems have seized.
The garden is magical, it’s a beautiful sight,
A place where you’ll actually enjoy the sunlight.
It is this type of inspiration that we hope to instill in every child through the Rock to Roots project. We are in full swing once again with our volunteer day. This past weekend, we began work on the trail system and also the raised beds that will be our future wildflower meadows and prairies.
