Community collaborates to build garden at Ready Springs School

Dawnya Van Dusen, a volunteer for the garden program at Ready Springs School — and an employee of Nevada County Farm Supply and Nursery in Penn Valley — is working with Mr. Bradley, the 8th-grade teacher, and garden businesses in the Penn Valley community to renovate the garden at Ready Springs School. The school recently received a delivery of two yards of garden soil from Four Seasons, a Penn Valley soil supplier. Later in the week, the school will receive a donation of vegetables from Nevada County Farm Supply and Nursery. Greg Lightfoot, a local nurseryman and longtime resident of Penn Valley, will donate wood chips/mulch for garden pathways; his children attended Ready Springs in the past. “I think this is a great example of a community coming together for the benefit of local children and the ability to learn about gardening in school,” Van Dusen said.
