Students near San Diego get with the program and plant some cactus after all.

When their science teacher announced plans to make a cactus garden that would be a model of water conservation, students pictured an arid landscape.

BORing.

Hey! That’s not fair. Kids can be so cruel.

But some eighth-graders at San Marcos Middle School embraced the after-school project after seeing pictures of an award-winning cactus garden with bright colors and resembling a coral reef. They perked up more after visiting Palomar College’s cactus garden down the street.

Students then decided to dedicate the garden that they would create to Lenny Preyss, a popular history and English teacher who is retiring in June after 31 years on campus. The school garden should be finished next week.

Oh. That’s better. Good for them. I wonder how that turned out?
