Eagle Scout candidate Alex Ruschau and other members of Boy Scout Troop 14 are volunteering their time to help Wilkinson Elementary students plant a vegetable garden at the school.
The scouts started work in early July, building raised beds for the garden, which students will plant in the fall. Tools and other supplies for the garden were paid for by a grant from Whole Foods acquired by second-grade teacher Linda Ayad.
“We are very excited to have the opportunity for an on-site garden at Wilkinson,” Ayad said in a release. “The students will plant and enjoy their harvest and also use the garden for science activities.”
