Alameda Master Gardeners help School Garden

Story by Kathleen Cotta ’05, Nikki Justino ’05-Alameda County Master Gardeners

A team of several Master Gardeners headed by June Wallace spent a full day setting up the irrigation for the Sorensdale Recreation Center garden. The school provided the materials and Master Gardeners provided technical and hands-on support. A great job was done by all.

This Garden is located at 275 Goodwin Street in Hayward. The primary purpose of this facility is to provide opportuni­ties for develop­mentally disabled persons to partici­pate in recreation­al, educational and daily living skills activities. Food from the garden is used in the on-site kitchen for all who attend the school. South County Master Gardeners have been helping the school for over two years.

Shelly Luchini is the Recreation Coordinator. and exhibits the huge onions in the photo above from the school garden raised beds.  Sim Mirande is a Recreation Specialist and an instructor for many programs, including art, computer classes and the gardens.
