How did it go?
Los Cerritos Roots and Shoots students planted a garden bed full of produce which we plan to donate to a local food bank or homeless shelter. We planted lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, turnips, carrots and beets. These crops should be ready for harvest sometime after January 1. Through our school garden and projects such as this the students are becoming aware of the issues of hunger and homelessness in our community.
