La Huerta Visits North County Schools

Some students had an opportunity to visit La Huerta sustainable vegetable garden at the Santa Barbara Mission last fall.  Other students were lucky enough to have a special visitor, Judy Sims, teach a lesson at their school this spring.  She captivated the students talking about Mission era history and plants, including cotton and broom corn.  She brought heirloom seeds, including; corn, beans and squash to share with the schools for a 3 Sisters garden planting.  The students thoroughly enjoyed our special guest!
