Students and their families gathered on the front lawn of Calaveras Elementary School on Sept. 28 in an effort to revitalize the community garden on campus. The project began after the inaugural Saturday Scholar class.
The Calaveras Parent-Teacher Organization Collective hosted a rock painting session with artist Joel Esqueda from Hollister Art Collab. They had envisioned students leaving their mark on the garden by painting rocks that would form a footpath in the garden. San Benito Rockery donated three yards of smooth river rock for the effort.
“I’m excited to see how parents are invested in the community and getting involved,” said Hollister Councilman Rolan Resendiz, who represents District 2 where Calaveras is located.
