Oxnard Firefighters build Channel Islands School Garden

Over Spring Break, Oxnard Firefighters Jeff Wondoloski, Nick Strouse, Zane Heffner and Jeff Depippo joined Channel Islands students to put together garden boxes in Channel Islands’ new school garden.  Walmart volunteers also arrived to support the project with a donation of $300 for gardening supplies.  Coastal Pipco Irrigation Supply has provided the garden’s irrigation system, Agromin provided the soil, and BMC Lumber and Ventura County’s Nutrition Education Obesity Prevention program supplied the lumber. None of this would have been possible without the dedication of our students, and the generosity of our heroes- the Oxnard Fire Department!  We are looking forward to sharing our first harvest with everyone at CIHS!
