Spring Garden Helpers
Llewellyn Elementary School

Our school garden needs some spring love!  Below is a list of construction projects, event support, and classroom support. The construction projects are currently the greatest, time-sensitive need. We want to get the space in shape this month, if possible!

 

Please contact ReneeCBWilkinson@gmail.com if you have questions about the level of effort or commitment. It takes a village!


Jobs

Shed roof replacement Signed Up: 0 / 2

The garden shed roof leaks and needs to be rebuilt! The new roof will need to extend off the backside another 1-2', to protect our season mason bee houses from the rain. PTA will cover the cost of supplies, but we need helpers to get the supplies and install.

Classroom Garden Liaisons Signed Up: 4 / 12

Can you take the lead on connecting with your teacher, or grade level, or multiple classrooms to help them use the garden? We've got loads seeds you could use for in-classroom projects. We can give you a tour of the garden/shed, so you can lead classrooms in outdoor garden time (raking paths, pulling weeds, exploring soil, etc). Interest varies among teachers in using the garden space, but dedicated classroom garden helpers makes it much easier for them to get out there.
