After School Garden Work Party 

Join us after school for a Garden Work Party!
Thursday, February 23rd, 3:15 - 4:30pm

This month we'll be focused on cleaning and organizing the shed so we are ready to go when spring arrives! We'll also tackle some small tool repairs and need help moving the dirt pile behind the shed in preparation for creating an outdoor educational space. We love for students to join us, but also need adult hands for some of the heavier lifting.  Rain or shine, we plan to dig in the dirt. Please wear appropriate shoes.

Can't make it but want to bake or bring snacks to fuel the group? Please reach out to to coordinate.  See you there. Let's grow together!
