Approximately 60 students from James Denman Middle School will plant the garden, using seedlings donated by the Golden Gate Park nursery, outside the Ingleside police station, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The project, part of the Gang Resistance Education and Training Program, was designed to help prevent youth crime, violence and gang involvement through community service.

Ingleside station Capt. David Lazar said that in addition to involving the students in a constructive activity, such projects help foster good relations between youth and police.
