On November 18th, 8 tomato cages were delivered to the Patton Gardens. Ms. Ballard and Ms. Hisler were there to accept the generous donation, an Eagle Scout project for senior Ayrton Gilbert.
The gardens are in their tenth year and the cages were in desperate need of replacement.
Ayron created a plan, which was accepted by the Boy Scout council and he built the six he originally promised but threw in an extra two.
Once the gardens are up and growing again in the spring and summer these cages will help hold the tomatoes as they grow, which in turn means a greater yield and more in the community who will have fresh vegetables.
This is a shining example of our school and community working together!
