It’s no secret how Pennycook Elementary School kindergarten teacher Lani Ramos stays grounded, if not down-to-Earth — gardening. And where better to plant a plethora of vegetables than in the 11 wooden beds in front of the Vallejo school.
“This makes you feel … useful. It makes you feel like you’re doing something, contributing and it gets your mind off the negative effects of the quarantine,” Ramos said.
With sun hat and face mask in place, Ramos took to the soil on Saturday, assisted by Pennycook parent Shannon Bowling and Bowling’s daughter, Norah, 6, and son Simon, 4.
