The campus shed was broken into and many of their tools were taken. The students were upset, but have been amazed at the community support they have received.

The Green Team at Harris has been working hard to create a beautiful garden area for students, teachers and the community to enjoy.

There are about 20 students in the club who learn about botany, biology and gardening. They have learned about pruning flowers, watering plants, and growing crops. Students use their tools every day.

One person has already brought gardening tools to the school for the club. The students felt this donation from La Prensa helps put them ahead with their growing project.

The Green Team is hosting a Garden Clean Up event on May 18. They are inviting the community to come help and visit the garden.
