  • Happy Solstice!

    Sixteen classes visited the garden for our annual Winter Solstice Celebration on Thursday December 20th (a day early due to a rainstorm predicted for 12/21) They enjoyed cocoa, cookies and poems that were prepared and hung in the garden by students in class 2-325, 2-324, 3-303 and 5-314.  It was an amazing day. Thank you to all who volunteered and/or donated cookies and visited!  Winter solstice celebrates the change of the seasons and now that the shortest day is behind us, we look forward to the spring and are making plans for a renewed and revitalized garden post-construction project.  Its a great time to make an impact and get involved.  Come out to any Friday meeting or contact Ms. Sheri.   Parent volunteers at all experience levels are welcome and needed!

It is used for science, gardening and STEAM lessons, cooking classes, clubs, art workshops, celebrations and more!  Parents who have skills in gardening, teaching, composting, art,  construction, fundraising, nutrition, cooking, crafts and more - or just have time and want to learn and help out - are needed and very welcome.  We are looking to improve and grow our programs for classes and families this year!

  • Katy's Krops - application deadeline 12/31/18

    Do you know  a child 9-16 who is interested in gardening, food justice and helping to end hunger?  This program looks great and I would love to support a child's efforts to apply for this program. Parent support is a must.  Call me if you are interested or plan to apply personally.
