From Small Beginnings
A labor of love is sprouting in the Emalyn Leppard Community Garden in Linda Vista! Supported by the San Diego River Park Foundation and the Forestry Dept., Montgomery Middle STEAM Magnet 6th graders planted acorns in their school garden to counteract a blight that is devastating our local oaks. The gold-spotted oak borer is an invasive pest contributing to the on-going oak tree mortality occurring in many areas of San Diego County. Isolated areas of infestation have been confirmed in Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties in Southern California. The goal of this project is to raise saplings from seeds that will eventually be planted in the mountains of San Diego. Our entire 6th grade class is determined to help save our oaks from this dreaded pest! We will do this! Our 6th graders are determined and committed.

“An Oak tree is a daily reminder that great things often have small beginnings.”
