Tubman Village Charter School Open House

LMSR Rotary continues connection to Tubman Charter School
 
Club members coordinated a booth at the well-attended Tubman "Back to School BBQ" on August 26. Food Corps members from the school district were also there to help engage students and families in planting sunflower seeds, learning about the Tubman Towers (aeroponic towers purchased by the schools), choosing cookbooks and activity books from the CalFresh Healthy Living program, and "Touching and Sniffing"sensory plants from the garden. Several parents signed up to learn how they can help with the garden in the new school year which began August 29!

Garden project at Tubman Village Charter School

story thumbnail
Our July monthly service meeting and project was held at Harriet Tubman Village Charter School. This was the beginning of what the school hopes will become a productive edible plants garden to supplement their school's meal program. Our club plans to continue to support this school's students by helping to supply them with the necessary tools and materials to educate students about how to grow healthy food and how to cook meals with that food. The garden needed weeds pulled, soil amended and ice plant moved to fill in empty spaces. We started a collection of "touch and smell" plants for the students to discover how so many plants can be distinguished by how they feel and smell.
