Today my school, Lewis Elementary, was host to an Earth Day work party. Teachers, students, parents and community members came to Lewis this morning to work in our garden area and take part in Earth Day celebrations. In addition to our local community members, students from Portland State University and employees from the Clif Bar company volunteered their time to help on various projects. These included building compost bins, weeding beds, planting flowers and vegetable starts and helping with a general clean up of the grounds. We had a great turn out and it is one of those events that make me so glad I am part of a school community.
