Sun, Seeds and Starts!

Today at the Umpqua Valley Arts Association, Fir Grove Elementary’s Leadership group got to come help out with the planting of a salsa garden!  We started by spreading fresh dirt on the beds and then got to plant all of our ingredients; peppers, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos & more!  The students had a wonderful time planting and getting their hands a little dirty.  We hope to have them come back again and help with continued weeding and watering of the garden!
