Larkspur plants fruit trees for valentine's day

DATE: Feb. 14
TIME: 9 a.m.
LOCATION: gymnasium, larkspur es, 1802 larkspur

Larkspur Elementary School Sprouts Garden Club presents a Valentine's Day fruit tree planting event with help from sponsors Fruit Tree Planting Foundation and DAP Construction.

A grant was written in the fall of 2012 to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation to provide 30 fruit trees to be planted at Larkspur.

The club's goal is to promote healthier food choices (i.e. fruits, vegetables, whole grains) early on to combat diabetes, high blood pressure, and other health related issues associated with obesity.

The trees will be planted around the campus to promote healthy food choices and help beautify the school grounds.
