Garden Club

The Garden Club is a club that plants California Native plants, waters them, and cares for them inside the school campus.  The club also helps to learn more about California Native, wildflowers and other plants and how to plant and water them.  Members talks about what plants are adapted to drought tolerant, hot, cold, windy, or snowy climate.  It is a club where students also learn about the history of California, The Portola Expedition, The Rancho period (Rancho Santa Ana de Abajo that used to be on this site) and plants that were around during those times, and how to keep a sustainable native plant garden.  The club paints signs and murals to accentuate the gardens.
