On a recent Saturday morning, members of the Davis Sunrise Rotary Club helped build seven redwood garden planter boxes in which Davis High School students will grow food for the school’s kitchen. The planters stand where the old multipurpose room was torn down last summer.

Rotarians, parents and DHS students and teachers, in collaboration with school district officials, completed the project that was three years in the making.

Just as the project was about to begin, approval and demolition of the MPR began and the project was put on hold. This forced a long delay and an entirely new plan. Thanks to landscape architect Cheryl Sullivan at Cunningham Engineering, a new plan and materials list were quickly in place.

Davis Rotarians purchased the materials and assembled the planter boxes on site. Students from the agricultural and special education departments participated in soil preparation, irrigation and planting.

In the future, the students will be responsible for planting, watering and harvesting the food under the supervision of Davis High teachers Ellie Michel, Alex Hess, Debbie Covert and Leticia Vasquez, all of whom were instrumental in the completion of the project.

Other help was provided by Gary Pearson, who drove the tractor to move 25 yards of soil for the planters, and Carrie Juchau, who coordinated the final irrigation and cleanup.

The Sunrise Rotary Club meets Fridays at 7 a.m. at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis.
