Volunteers sought for garden
ROMEOVILLE — With an eye on creating an edible garden at the school, Martinez Middle School is looking for parents and other members of the community who would like to serve on a committee to explore the possibility.
Following successful pilot edible garden projects this year at Tibbott Elementary School and Jane Addams Middle School in Bolingbrook, Valley View School District’s Nutrition Services Department is offering $5,000 grants to schools that can show that they are serious about creating edible gardens.
To volunteer, contact Stacey Morelos at 815-886-6100 ext. 339 (MorelosCS@vvsd.org) or Barb Abney (AbneyBM@vvsd.org.)
