School’s garden teaches life skills – Daily Republic

By Susan Hiland

The small garden plots were overflowing with greens, Saturday. The Matt Garcia Career and College Academy eighth-graders put in a year’s work to get the plot of land in the parking lot to grow with fresh fruits and vegetables.

“When we started it was just all dirt and weeds,” said Ian Corrales, 14.

He, along with the entire class, began this new project this year. At first glance perhaps, gardening seems a strange thing to teach children, but this garden incorporates so much more than planting seeds and watching them grow.
