The Vista de las Cruces School Garden has several enthusiastic parents, teachers, students and community members who volunteer every week. 

The Gaviota area has a rich history of ranching and farming that dates back over 100 years.  Local ranchers and farmers support our garden with seed stock, expert advice, classroom presentations, field trips and donations.  You can be a part of this rich experience. Join us in the garden anytime.  All students, teachers, parents, alumni and community members are welcome!
