In 2021, Rebecca White and Christy Watston of Ione Junior High, applied for the Farms of Amador $500 garden grant.   Their needs included wood for planter boxes, drip lines, soil, and seeds and plants.  They didn’t have a garden but did have an area with an old retaining wall.   They planned to replace the 6″ retaining wall and would then build raised beds.  The gardens would be used during lessons pertaining to growth in organisms and genetics in addition to soil chemistry and propagation.
