Lettuce Turnip the Beet

Paso Verde is Natomas Unified's newest TK-5 school that opened its doors in August 2017 for its founding year.  Paso Verde’s garden "Lettuce Turnip the Beet" was funded largely by a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant, but it has gotten a big boost from community friends, too — Fiery Ginger Farms,  Sacramento County Farm Bureau, local Cub Scout troops, and our PTA all contributed to ensure we had a successful foundation for our learning. We broke ground on our garden in October and our minds and crops have been growing steadily ever since.
