The garden at Rancho Elementary School is in desperate need of some tender loving care.

Former student Dylan Esposito, 13, a Temecula resident, decided he was going to refurbish the garden upon a visit to the school.

His idea to refurbish the garden was in part to his Eagle Scout project and to give back to the school he attended for several years.

The students and teachers greatly appreciate Espositoís idea to makeover the garden, said Pam May, principal at Rancho Elementary.

"This educational outdoor setting is utilized by many to enhance their learning concepts from the classroom."

Once the garden is complete, every year in the springtime the students will be able to plant and grow a variety of vegetables and flowers, May also said, while learning about the growing and harvesting process.

they will have an opportunity to learn about nature through hands on experience.

Currently Esposito is putting together the last details to get started on the work for the project.

"Iím very proud of him and his scouting accomplishments so far," his mother said.

By the first of the year he plans to have completed the garden.

"By March the kids from each class can plant the seeds and learn about plants," said Esposito.

Getting donations for the project has been the most difficult part, he said.

To help pay for materials, he is in the process of a recycle drive and also hopes local stores will help him.

Putting together an organizational chart so everyone who volunteers has a job to do has also been a minor difficulty. He knows he will get help from his troop of scouts because they are a "great group."

"Iím looking forward to seeing the final outcome of Dylanís project," Beth Esposito said.
