The Secret Magical Amazing Caring Science Garden

As the 2021-22 school year began, third grade science & social studies teacher Shirley Adamo, received a grant for roughly $2,500. This grant, called Project Green, was chosen to sow the seeds of St. Mary’s Academy Charter School’s new pollinator garden. As spring approached, Director of Maintenance Patti Johnson and her staff, Regina Puentes, Lionel Garza, Mason Calliham, and Robert Casarez, worked with Adamo and her third grade students to begin prepping the area for the garden. During class time, the students learned the ins and outs of gardening. Students were eager to get their hands dirty “literally” with digging, pulling weeds, and planting flowers and deciding where the plants should go. Another staff member, Cindy Brown, brought her sixth grade science students to pair up with the third grade students to help and learn about the garden as well. Adamo had one goal in mind throughout this project by teaching her students that even small gardens can make huge differences.
