BRADLEY — Bradley Elementary School is building its first-ever community garden, utilizing donations from community partners like Chevron and mentorship from staff and students at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly).
The garden will be used for educational learning, with students having the opportunity to explore the latest technology in agriculture, thanks to the established partnership with Cal Poly. It will also be a source to share produce with community members in need.
Plans for the garden include soliciting design input from students and planting seasonal crops, fruit trees and native flowers and plants.
In addition, there are opportunities for the community to donate toward the garden project at the school, located in southern Monterey County. The three levels of support are:
- Level 1: Brick with name/company name engraved to go in the garden ($150);
- Level 2: Paver with name/company name engraved to go in the garden ($350); and
- Level 3: Choice of a tree to be planted in the garden with name/company name recognition ($500).
All donations are tax-deductible and will commemorate the gift that has been provided to the school community.
