The Raíces Garden Crew is growing. Members of our recently formed Community Action Team as well as students from the Highland Park High School Environmental Club have been volunteering to transplant herbs and perennials, start seedlings, work on the Raíces Seed Library, and even create new gardens at their own homes.
We are hoping to collaborate with the High School’s Green Team to keep the school gardens in town taken care of throughout the summer, as well as find new places to plant in our community. It has been inspiring and exciting to see the enthusiasm of our crew as they get their hands into the soil and work to green our community, promote pollinators, and raise food production awareness, one seed and one plant at a time.
