Summer Youth Work Crew!

The Hopland Elementary School Garden got a big summer cleaning and weeding thanks to the tremendous work of the MCOE Summer Youth Garden Crew!!

The MCOE Youth Garden Project, in partnership with MPIC, has been able to allow "At-Risk" youth to lend a helping hand in our community. The funds for this fantastic Service Learning Project came through a federal stimulus grant package. Students work daily on different community and school gardens helping to clear away weeds, build garden boxes, double - dig new beds, install and repair drip irrigation, harvest crops, and make homemade projects. The students will be putting on an event "What's Growing On" on August 7th @ MCOE to showcase their skills and gardens. For more information, contact the crew leader, Jonna at
