IRVINE, Calif. One Central Coast Elementary School will receive a generous check to help its students learn the value of farming and nutrition thanks to a family of two alumni. Gilroy farmer Joe Aeillo will present a check to San Martin/Gwinn School Wednesday. The money will help support the school garden at the elementary school, where students get hands-on learning about what it takes to grow fruits and vegetables, the importance of good nutrition and the wonderful sense of accomplishment of eating what one grows.
