Chino –Oxford Preparatory Academy School students had the opportunity to cultivate a curriculum-based school garden thanks to a water-wise “Garden in Every School” program sponsored by the Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA), Lewis Group of Companies, Chino Basin Water Conservation District, the Cucamonga Valley and Monte Vista Water Districts, the San Antonio and Fontana Water Companies, and the cities of Chino, Chino Hills, Ontario, Upland, Fontana and Rancho Cucamonga. The garden offers curriculum connections aligned with the state standards celebrating California’s multicultural diversity by incorporating plants used for food, fiber, shelter, medicinal, and other purposes, by indigenous people of California, and those who have made the state their home.
