Adopt a Garden Program

Posted on May 7, 2013, in Lancer Life, Organizations

General McLane School District has launched an “Adopt a Garden Program” for members in and around the community. Gardeners are invited to adopt one of the many gardens district-wide in need of a little tender loving care.

This project can be a great deal of fun and a source of community pride. For those with kids in the District, Superintedent Richard Scaletta says this could be a fun project for the entire family.

“If you have children attending one of our schools, making this a family project will not only be good for the family, but will give your children a sense of pride and ownership in their school. It’s a chance to teach community service as well as civic and school pride. As your child walks into the school each day, he or she will remember your family experience and have a sense of pride and belonging.”

The areas in need of “ownership” are listed in the attached document.

If you’d like to adopt one, please call 273-1033, extension 5901 or you can email Supt. Richard Scaletta at

Let’s get growing!
