Skyline kindergarteners plant garden

Solana Beach City Councilmembers Joe Kellejian and Mike Nichols joined the Room 9 kindergarten class at Skyline Elementary with their parents on April 29 to celebrate the completion of a new garden.

Air conditioning units and a wire fence surrounded the classroom, but it has since been transformed to an outdoor classroom where the children can care for vegetables and flowers. Krista Percival, a local landscape designer and parent volunteer at Skyline Elementary, created the plans for the garden.

The Solana Beach City Council awarded the school a $3,000 grant to create the garden. Additional funds were raised by the kindergarteners and their parents through a rummage sale, raffle and lemonade stand.
