Students in the horticulture and landscape design class removed weeds, dead trees and trimmed shrubs.
After the removal of the unwanted plants, the students installed weed preventing matting over the landscape and covered up the matting with washed stone. They also planted grass, spread straw over the seed, and watered the seed for proper germination.
Each year, the Riverside FFA Chapter completes a community service project to develop a better understanding of the role civic activities have in society, to make a contribution to a community service or charity, and to learn and apply the principles of the numerous components of marketing management.
