The City of Largo helped jumpstart Largo High School’s school garden.

February 4 2020

The City of Largo Recreation Parks and Arts Department recently delivered a truckload of soil to Largo High School to help support the Environmental Club’s efforts to start a school garden. The project’s organizer Elena Villamagna and her classmates were very excited and thankful to be receiving the soil donation from Parks staff member Steve Burke.

The garden will receive more help from the community, including starting plants provided courtesy of Wilcox Nursery, and the school’s auto shop donated used tires which the students have decorated as planters.

The soil donation to the Environmental Club is part of the city’s efforts to engage with the community to build a more sustainable and resilient Largo for generations. To learn more about the City of Largo’s sustainability efforts visit or contact
