Garden crew meeting are held on the first Friday of the month in the cafeteria after the morning bell.
Join in the conversation about Arleta’s green spaces and how how we can transform them into learning spaces for the students to enjoy.
We are in need of volunteers to help in many different areas of the garden. Please consider bringing your ideas, skills and passion to the Arleta Garden.
We are looking for volunteers to:
help with maintaining the native edible garden
apply for grants
create and support fundraising ideas
help get teachers and students involved in the garden
Join the Arleta Community for

ANNUAL SEED AND NATIVE PLANT DRIVE BEGINS OCT 22nd
From your Garden TO Arleta’s
Now is the perfect time to harvest seeds from your garden or clear out your old seed collections. Simply collect your dry seeds in an envelope, label them and drop them off in the Cafeteria starting OCT 22nd. Don’t have a garden but want to get involved? Ask your neighbors with gardens to donate seeds or pick up a pack at the grocery store.
Now is also the time to plant Native Trees, shrubs and perennials. Bring a native or Edible plant from one of your neighborhood nurseries to add to the collection. Here are some suggestions:
- Prickly Current
- Northern Black Current
- Blackcap or Oregon Raspberry
- Oregon Grape
- Rose (Woods, Prickly wild)
- Tiger Lilly
- Ostrich Fern
Drop off plants and seeds in the Cafeteria before school from 7:45am until 8:05 am. Don’t forget to label your seeds!
