We are happy to announce that Wilson C. Riles Middle School is the lucky recipient of a garden grant from the Lowes Toolbox For Education Grant!
Special thanks to Kevin Jordan, a teacher with the Sacramento County Office of Education for putting the time to dig the irrigation, stack the bricks and moving around many many wheelbarrow loads of dirt, mulch and bark.
We are very excited about the new growing garden on our campus. We look forward to the new learning opportunities this will create for our students!
Please contact the main office if you would like to donate addition tools or supplies or volunteer your time in helping us finish setting up and maintaining this wonderful asset to our school.
Some of the garden grant goals included:
- Introducing students to the benefits of gardening;
- Provide engaging opportunities for cooperative learning;
- Promote healthy eating habits through sustainable gardening education
