Volunteers spent the past two days helping Armijo High’s Garden of Hope prepare for its showcase at the school’s open house next month.
The 2,400-square-foot plot is the dream of Sylvia Herrera, a 21-year teaching veteran at the school.
The idea was planted in her mind a few years ago. She credits principal Sheila Smith for her support in the venture.
Brothers Isaiah and Isaac Powell were there early Tuesday to help out. Isaiah, who will be a junior, also helped out in the garden during the spring semester.
