Since the 2012 school year, the SJCMG cadre has provided educational opportunities for the students of Coldspring-Oakhurst Consolidated Independent School District. Over the last seven years, over five hundred (500) 3rd and 5th grade students have participated in both the classroom and in hands-on experiences. Students have grown vegetables that they have shared with the Senior Citizens of San Jacinto County. Master Gardeners have also shared their expertise at Career Day for James Street Elementary and Coldspring Intermediate School.
Cathy Loflin and Dr. Judi Benestante continue to lead this program for our organization. More to come on our efforts.
