Reading, Writing and Gardening
If your son's or daughter's school doesn't have a school garden, the Master Gardeners Association can help you and the school's teachers get one growing. Master Gardener volunteers are consulting with educators and parents to plan, plant and care for more than 100 school plots that teach gardening essentials and the pleasures of homegrown produce. A detailed guide, "Plant a Seed, Watch It Grow," is on the Master Gardener Web site, along with information on grants, a list of existing school gardens to visit, and forms to request help getting started. Find it all at www.mastergardenerssandiego.org.
