Venice High School students work on the presentation table this last Monday...
Because of inclement weather last Thursday, the actual day of Earth Day, tours of the Garden were postponed to this last Monday. Students from Walgrove Middle School and Beethoven Elementary School came through our Garden and visited a variety of booths that provided information on some environmental challenge faced by our society today: there was a cloning booth, farm workers booth, plastic bottle booth, composting booth and many, many more. The visiting students were not only educated by the Venice High School students, there were games to play that reinforced the learning and treats for all visitors.
It didn't rain on either the real Earth Day or our celebration of Earth Day, but both days were cold and cloudy and rain seemed to be imminent on almost every day between.
