garden1garden2Students from Big Picture’s high school AP Environmental Science and Biology classes turned out for a garden party on Saturday, February 15th, bright and early. Following a 4 ft. by 4 ft. model, students cut and built 12 raised garden boxes. Measured perfectly, holes were dug and the boxes lined up beautifully for an impressive garden layout. Yards of soil were transported from the parking lot to the garden boxes. Principal Bethany chipped in and wrestled her wheel barrow with ease. Fueled with donuts and Starbucks beverages, spirits ran high and the drizzling rain didn’t dampen the effort. After three hours of cooperative work, our gardeners could step back and marvel at their accomplishment. Everyone is looking forward to spring planting and watching our new garden grow.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
