Sonora High School Potato Patch

This year’s FoCuS Potato Patch was with Sonora High School’s Garden Club and students at Wild Cat Ranch. Students and volunteers harvested and bagged all the potatoes and other vegetables to a sold out crowd. This project was an excellent example of schools and community collaborating for sustainability. Click here to View Video
