Common Grounds Garden Club gets Ready for the new School Year

The Common Grounds Garden Club is ready for a new school year! The garden club allows students from the local middle school to have a hands-on learning experience in our garden.  As members of the club, students will get the chance to learn about soils, seeds, and good agricultural practices.  Students will get the chance to grow and maintain their own garden plots where they will focus on growing a healthy crop.  Students will have the chance to learn things that they can't learn in the classroom. The Common Grounds Garden Club will be held every Wednesday beginning September and running the remainder of the school year.  Students will meet at the Irrigation Museum from 2:30-4:30.  For more information, please contact MCARLM (831)385-8020.

Your donation will help us continue to inspire and engage current and future generations of agriculture and rural life history enthusiasts. Without the Agricultural and Rural Life Museum, our community would be bereft of the inspiration and sustenance provided by the historical context of our exhibitions. No matter the size of your budget, your gift will make a difference! Gifts of all sizes tremendously appreciated.

Thank you for your contribution!
