Garden Warrior Jonathan

Congratulations to Jonathan — pictured with an enormous turnip — on being selected as a Garden Warrior. “Farmer Jon” (as you’ll hear students lovingly refer to him) is a senior at Marysville Getchell High School. He is an outstanding garden steward and the Getchell garden’s biggest proponent. Having worked in the garden for almost two years now, he takes complete ownership and actually says the garden is his and holds fellow students and volunteers to very high standards of respectful participation. He is there every week and comes on his own time to water and make sure “his strawberries” are watered. He has even started growing a bit of food at home.

Congratulations to Carlos—pictured showing off a sunflower—on being selected as a Garden Warrior. Carlos is a fifth grader at Discovery Elementary School and is the president of his school’s Verde Garden Club. The school started their garden only one year ago and Carlos has been one of the most dedicated and enthusiastic leaders.

Garden Warriors Robbie and Alyssa

Congratulations to Robbie and Alyssa on becoming Garden Warriors. Robbie and Alyssa have a business with their mom, Kayce, called One Scrap at a Time. They used scrap material to make kitty toys and sold them at the holiday markets this past winter, earning over $400. They donated all the money that they earned to the Olivia Park school garden.
