According to the school’s director, Saturday was not just about maintaining the garden, but also about bringing families and staff together. “We have about 30 new students coming in this year, and we just want the families and the students to feel comfortable and safe in our learning spaces,” said the director of the school Paloma Libre Aranda.

Community partners also helped out with the event.
