On Thursday, September 7, 2017, Rolling Ridge Elementary School, located in Chino Hills, hosted their garden dedication to honor the completion of their very own water-wise education garden.
Last year, Rolling Ridge Elementary submitted a garden grant application through the Garden in Every School® program. After reviewing their application and their garden design, they were selected to receive a garden grant of $4,500. This grant went toward the installation of a water-wise garden. The goal of the program is to educate students, and the community, on how to grow a sustainable garden while using natural and formidable resources.
Along with the dedication of the garden, there were a number of entertaining presentations from students from the Garden Club. The celebration included original songs and poems, a ventriloquist act, and performance of “What a Wonderful World”.
