Kit Carson Gets a Garden

The community came together to build the elementary school's first garden as part of a school beautification effort.

On Saturday, March 11, Kit Carson Elementary School students and parents joined with Strive Fuel, ALON 7-Eleven volunteers to build the school's first garden. The project is part of a beautification effort, bringing fresh vegetation to students and providing green space for students to learn in an outdoor classroom environment. 

“Thanks to Strive Fuel, ALON 7-Eleven volunteers, and families from our school, we are thrilled to be able to create an important environment where our students can learn and where we can provide food grown right in our own backyard,” says Cindy Rael, Principal of Kit Carson Elementary School. “We are so appreciative of this opportunity and know that this will make a positive impact on our school, students, and our community.”

Led by APS Gardens Team, volunteers removed rocks and shrubs, began prepping and planting in the garden and built five garden boxes with hoops to protect the garden from harsh weather.
