Redwood Elementary Students Plant Fall Garden

A dozen young gardeners planted kale, lettuce, spinach, and peas at Redwood Elementary’s new school garden on September 19.

Fall is considered to be the third growing season, and is ideal for growing the healthy greens such as kale, Swiss chard, and lettuce.

The goal is to grow enough for a healthy after-school snack:  a salad.
