Da Vinci Charter Academy students Augustus Brandt, left, and Lauren Owens get some help from parent volunteers Bill Heinick and Jill Van Zanten as they construct a straw bale bench on the school campus at 1400 E. Eighth St. The bench used bales donated by UC Davis and ceramic tiles created by Da Vinci students as well as "found" tiles. A screen next to the school's stage area incorporated reclaimed materials.
