Gatto teamed up with Western Growers Foundation
California Assemblyman Mike Gatto teamed up with Western Growers Foundation May 20 to help special needs students in Glendale, Calif., plant a school garden made possible through a grant from the foundation.
The garden at College View School features raised, accessible beds built so students in wheelchairs can wheel right up next to them. “Helping our children learn the joys of gardening pays off over their lifetime. It’s an opportunity to be outside, to engage in good ol′ fashioned physical work, and to grow vegetables that are good for them,” Gatto said.
