Students Work at Campbell Historical Museum Garden

Delphi students garden at the Campbell Historical Museum

Ten students took a few hours out of their school day to help clear two planters for native plant xeriscaping at the Campbell Historical Museum. They dug out a bed of agapanthas with the intention of making room for a native plant garden friendly to pollinators.

Teamwork helps when carrying heavy plants.

"We are very grateful to the City of Campbell for the opportunity to help on this special project," said Associate Headmistress Kimi de Leonibus, who brought the students to the museum. "I don't know of any other city that is so willing to involve local youth in such meaningful ways. It's a real learning experience and it's important to the kids to realize they can help and truly contribute even though they are young."

The students also received a tour of the native plant garden on the opposite side of the museum. Earlier, the students had a hand in plant research for the area so it was very rewarding to see the growth and health of the plants in the space. City gardeners Chuck Porter and Dave Olson led the tour and also supervised the students' work in the planter beds.

Students tour the native garden to admire the results of their planning.
