DFHS ROTC students volunteered at the Irmo Branch
Library Habitat Garden for the second year in a row.
Dutch Fork High School has its Earth Club up and running again this school year. (Earth Club is featured from 0:35 – 3:30)
Dutch Fork HS Job Skills students made and donated eight finished bedrolls to Operation Bedroll for Columbia’s chronically homeless population. Each bedroll requires about 700 plastic grocery bags and 80 hours of labor (40 hours to make the plastic bag yarn and 40 hours to crochet.) Now these students are learning to weave plastic bags on pizza box looms.
The Dutch Fork High School Earth Club reported that the native All Spice bushes they planted recently on their campus are already turning green! The bushes were donated by local Master Gardener, Barbara Waters. Club members also planted pineberries outside their garden.
