2014-2015 Ocean Guardian focuses on Organic Gardening!

Being so close to Monterey Bay, as a school we focus on environmental studies. After being officially recognized last year as a NOAA Ocean Guardian School, Year 1, we are happy to announce that LAMS has been awarded its second Ocean Guardian School grant. We received funds to install organic gardens which will help reduce our carbon footprint and teach students sustainable garden practices. By kids growing their own food, they are more likely to eat healthy and help reduce childhood obesity. We also have a partnership with Jr League of Monterey County. We will keep harvest data and track numbers as we grow our plants. So far we have grown and eaten over 1,000 food items during first quarter 2014-2015! We already cooked and ate 20 healthy recipes from the garden and science students are experimenting with vegetables fresh from the garden.

LAMS Garden Tour Video


LAMS student Weston Blackburn's eagle scout project and his boy scout troop 187 completed 10 new raised beds from recycled wood. They also helped remove 15 wheelbarrows of invasive species like ice plant. They helped us remove 3 dumpsters of trash and unwanted products from garden. Volunteers spread 2 dump trucks full of wood chips to make sure the walking paths would be level and safe for the elders and those in wheelchairs. Lastly, everyone helped nail up all the recycled signs and decor with a partnership with MPUSD Funds for the Arts.

We installed 2 walking trails to make a horseshoe pattern through the west side. We also installed a word wall from the pallets saved from solar panels. There is now a huge creature (which looks like an awesome snake).   We also cleaned out, painted, and repurposed the once boarded lab into an area for the student garden art which they made with technology, like smartphones. Students even painted an ocean mural. We now have 10 themed gardens: butterfly garden, chile garden, succulent alleys, secret garden, giving tree, music garden, shade garden, bathtub alley, recycled garden, and veggie tale garden. The garden now includes 20+ total raised beds, a huge creature, fruit garden by the outdoor classroom, sensory garden and much more. A big thanks to all those that helped!!!!
