Best of Thymes Garden
Harvesting Arugula can be very meditative. Students learn patience and how repetitive motion can be calming and meditative. Gardening can be a great stress relief if you have an upcoming exam, feeling a lot of pressure from work or simply need some fresh air and sunshine. Plus you can eat what you harvest!

Arroyo High School Garden
Arroyo Garden is in full swing with spring harvesting. Every work day kids are taking home veggies, discussing recipes and sharing health benefits of their harvest. Some students have made salsa, salads, smoothies and much more. Everyone is excited for the spring and summer planting in the newly constructed beds.
