It is also for others in the school community who are interested in school gardens, such as support workers and parents. Explore how to grow a garden in concert with nature. Learn how to attract insects and birds to help pollinate crops and eat pesky pests. Discover why you should rotate a diversity of plants. Be introduced to crops that are well suited to the west coast and the school year. Investigate how to inexpensively build healthy soil.
