Rosemont Green Academy Students Help Sequoia to Get Growing

e-Connections Post Rosemont Sequoia

Students from the Masonry and Culinary Arts programs within Rosemont’s Green Academy recently walked over to Sequoia Elementary to prepare Sequoia’s garden for its next growing season. This was the first Garden Service Day designed to enrich the community of schools in the Rosemont enrollment area through community service. Students spent the day clearing pathways, installing irrigation, setting a keystone wall garden bed, weeding, tending to raised beds and setting a decomposed granite path. Advanced Masonry students donated their personal time to prepare for this event – before and after school hours – marking pathways and calculating grade heights. The Green Academy at Rosemont High is one of the Linked Learning programs within SCUSD.
