Salmon Students Clean Up Community Garden

Students of the Salmon Seventh-day Adventist School got to participate in a great community service project on Sept. 16. The students worked hard cleaning, weeding, beautifying and harvesting the community’s garden at the local Sacajawea Center.

Every summer the Sacajawea Center has a community garden. For the past two years they have asked the school to help clean them out at the end of the season. Not only did the kids work hard but also had a lot of fun digging in the dirt, looking for hidden potato treasures and trying new vegetables they would have never tried if it wasn’t for picking them themselves. The day also turned out to be educational for the kids as they learned things ranging from how tall a sunflower can grow to how to properly make a compost pile. 

The day proved to be a great success in helping the community, and the students can’t wait until next year to get their hands dirty again.
