Native plant garden gets boost


Garfield/Palouse high school students from Mark Sawyer's Natural Resource management class work in the Palouse native plant garden during the last week of school.

A Palouse resident has led a new effort at the native plant garden near the south entrance of town by the car wash. The project has involved school children, the Palouse Conservation District and Americorps.

"I'm an individual looking to revitalize the native plant garden," said Jamie Gaber, a six-year Palouse resident who works in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) literacy at the WSU Center for Civic Engagement.

The Palouse Conservation District donated plants and 50 Garfield/Palouse grade school to high school students helped with plantings in May and early June.
