Volunteers worked side by side with Los Amigos 4th and 5th grade students who are a part of the after-school 21st Century Gardening Club, they removed weeds, prepared the soil for planting and learned to plant fruit and vegetable plants. 

Los Amigos Librarian, Jennifer Flores, oversees the after-school Gardening Club which helps students physically connect with nutrition education, understand the process of growing healthy foods and recognizing environmental stewardship. Being a part of a gardening club helps students increase their awareness of the environment, natural resources, conservation, composting and recycling.
