Marblehead Garden celebrates 1st year

The school garden at Marblehead Elementary in San Clemente, Calif., celebrated its first year thanks to a grant from Western Growers’ Foundation. The foundation funded the garden with $1,500 in the Fall 2010 round of grants made possible by the Monsanto Fund. The garden is spearheaded by retired Marblehead teacher Stephanie Anfinson who now volunteers full-time for the garden program.
