The Yokayo Elementary PTA would like to thank the Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op Community Grant Program for the $1500 in funding for the “Garden Oasis” at Yokayo Elementary School. Thanks to this generous community donation, we have been able to make many upgrades in our school garden. We have purchased garden hoses and hose reels, as well as, hand tools. We have been teaching the students natural weed abetment using their hands, hand tools and solarization. We are working on making gravel paths to reduce the mud in the garden. Our students currently have a great 3-bed fall garden, which they have seeded or transplanted all on their own, with soil, seeds, & plants that were all purchased using these grant funds.
Thanks to these community funds, our school garden has become a gathering space for many of our students, as well as a place offering hands-on learning opportunities. On behalf of all of us that benefit from the “Garden Oasis” at Yokayo thank you for your generosity!
