Alejandro is a five-year-old pre-kindergarten student at Mariposa Academy.
When he digs in the soil, Alejandro says, he finds pumpkin seeds and ants.
He wants to plant a coconut tree, and he smelled mint in class, he says. He says he likes going to the garden with his teachers.
“I want to make tunnels everywhere, so people can put the seeds,” he says. “It’s going to be hard.”
