Campus Native Plant Gardens 2017

Friends Board member Anne Siskin has been working with head of School Tara Seekins and Maintenance Chief Alan Rothkop, as well as some WCA 3rd graders and mentor students from Marin Country Day, to design a drainage system to go with our new 2000 square foot hillside native plant garden.  On MLK Day this year, over 80 volunteers from local business Heath Ceramics helped the Friends clear weeds from this hillside in the center of campus and plant dozens of native plants and mulch.   The rainy winter resulted in some “run-on” of parking lot water washing out some of the garden, and we responded by designing flow paths that will keep the garden intact over time.  These trenches will eventually have rounded rocks so they look like a little creek (a preview of our big creek restoration to come!!!)
