This Week in the Garden: Spring Clearing!
Next Garden Club is Friday, April 20th from 11:45 am - 12:30 pm
This week, our enthusiastic and super energetic garden volunteers from Snooze Eatery came out to help us beautify our garden. We sanded and weather sealed the work tables, reworked two of the compost bins and spread the finished compost in our raised beds, hung a decorative bird house, raked, weeded and took garden debris to the dumpster. The garden looks so fresh and clean. Thank you to Snooze and all of our many Garden Partners!
Join us next Friday, April 20th, when "guests" Mac and Pedro will be collaborating with Garden Club students for a special Earth Day edition with our Boomerang Picnic Lunchers! Students will help direct the composing of school, and lunches from home, into the compost bins in the garden.
Questions about Garden Club? please contact Stephanie Murphy.
