Members of Troop 2005, chartered in Whittier, along with Rio San Gabriel students and family members assisted in the garden's creation. The $1,500 project was funded by the Rio San Gabriel PTA and donations from friends and family. Lee graduated from Downey High School this week. He will attend UC Berkeley in the fall.
