Ash Creek Students Receive Victory Garden Grant Award

In an award ceremony held at Sierra Vista Public Library, Ash Creek students Brandon Martinez, Ryann Marx, Sienna Martinez, Cyrrah Beaver, Samantha Toumey, and Lexie Simmons and teacher Vicki Marvick accepted a grant award from the Cochise Community Foundation. The grant will fund the expansion of a small experimental vegetable garden into a 280 square foot vegetable garden. The project, called the Ash Creek Victory Garden, is part of Ash Creek School’s hands-on approach to science learning. It is expected to provide a source of fresh organic produce for the school cafeteria as well as integrated science, math, and social studies lessons for students.
