Ralph Dunlap Elementary School in the Orcutt area is celebrating Earth Day after receiving a vegetable plant donation.

The Lake Marie Valley Club membership director says Plantel Nurseries donated various plants to the club to sell as a fundraiser for Earth Day. The remaining plants were then given to Ralph Dunlap.

The school is planning to use the 1,887 vegetable plants for classroom projects and instruction.

Plants will also be distributed to families getting school lunches and teachers interested in starting a garden.
