On Barbara Avenue behind the YMCA building.  Adult help requested.  Students must be accompanied by an adult.  If you have tools/pruners please bring them.  Water and fruit will be available whenever you need a break.  Bring your friends! Thank you!

  • Beginning September 10th Regularly on Mondays 1:35pm-3:30pm.  Make new friends, dig for bugs, use garden tools to prune plants, pull undesired volunteer plants (weeds), rake and sweep up leaves, plan what’s growing this season, plant seeds and seedlings, brainstorm garden projects and simply enjoy the campus garden.  

WHY:

  • It’s fun to get your hands dirty, make friends, get your vitamin D, grow food & flowers and beautify campus!
  • Our gardens are also used by the Living Classroom, a program whose docents lead classes of all grades for garden excursions, observations and planting.

Welcomed Donations:

  • vegetable plant starters
  • seeds
  • hand pruners (5)
  • knee pads (10)

The PTA has a garden budget of $500 covering the gardens’ soil and irrigation costs. Thank you for funding the PTA!

In the Garden’s Future:

  • Are you handy?  Do you have tools at home to create critter cages to protect growing plants in the garden beds?  Please email/text Liz for dimensions, etc.  
  • Irrigation Maintenance (alternate critter proof system)
  • Lunchtime Garden Club

Lunchtime garden club lasts about 15 minutes at the start of lunch when students normally have their play portion (play first, then eat). Each classroom will receive 2 or more garden passes that are rotated weekly among students in each class.
