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.
