Hi, My name is Marlena Hirsch. I teach science for students who are behind in credits at Piner High School, Santa Rosa City Schools. I use a large vegetable garden, greenhouse, and habitat/rain garden to demonstrate science. We compost, grow our veggie starts, and grow a few native plants. This is the first year that our food will go to the cafeteria. We are working to make the campus a place of beauty while supplying delicious food.
This year the district has approved a non toxics policy for all schools. Piner High is working to become an example of safe organic weed control. (No more roundup, yay!)
