Garden gains glory
On Wednesday, May 15, three Oregon state representatives, along with Farm to School Coordinator Rick Sherman, came to Molalla High School to visit Oregon's five-hundredth school garden.
State representatives Vic Gilliam, Ben Unger and Brian Clem, along with Sherman, were welcomed by Culture Club Advisor Kelly Douglas and club officers. The officials were given a tour of the budding garden and invited to stay for lunch.
Although most school gardens are discontinued within three years, Douglas and the Culture Club officers explained how this garden will become a living legacy for the school.
We are going to start a Big Sister Big Brother program at the elementary school to teach them how to garden and then they will come up here and know what to do, said club officer Evlalia Toran.
