Garen Crew Meetings

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

solicit donations

apply for grants

create and support fundraising ideas

help get teachers and students involved in the garden

Hello world!

Join the Arleta Community for

Landscaping and Garden Day!


10am to 1pm

Join us to spruce up the grounds and ready our new garden beds for the winter and coming spring. Members of Arleta’s gardening committee will be on hand to train volunteers on caring for our Native & Edible plant gardens, as well as take any plant or seed donations.


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:

  • Salmonberry
  • Huckleberry
  • Prickly Current
  • Northern Black Current
  • Salal
  • 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!
