Our School Garden Club will be held after school on Wednesdays from 3:30 – 4:30 pm starting on September 14th and run through October 26th. It will begin again in the spring from April to June. We will be growing organic vegetables such as lettuce and peas this fall for our lunch room as well as other vegetables in the spring. In addition, we will be growing some flowers, and helping out with landscaping around the school grounds. We will also be using some weather stations to monitor rain fall and other factors that affect gardening. Also, we will be composting and raising our own earthworms in the spring. Students will need to bring sun block and bug spray if needed, and a snack and water if desired. Students will need to be picked up promptly at 4:30, no later than 4:35 pm. This year we are adding a $5.00 fee towards seeds, fertilizer, etc. If this is a hardship for your family, please contact Mrs. Kivela for a free scholarship.
So come join us in growing adventures!
Mrs. LaMontagne and Mrs. Cohen
