Since I last saw you all the garden has also had lots of changes due to COVID19.   

No students in the garden meant the back beds were left to go wild, while the front beds grew beautiful tomatoes, squashes, corn, and cucumbers.    Stop by and grab a tomato, but please let the squash and melons continue to grow. 

As we transition into the new school year there are quite a few things needed in the garden too:

Tools— almost all of our tools were taken while school was closed.  We need shovels, rakes, loppers, to name a few. 

Adult volunteers— I would love to find a parent or community member who is an experienced flower gardener who wants to take on reclaiming and maintaining the rock border wall around the learning garden. 

Plants, seeds, cash donations— we need seeds and plants for the fall, winter, and spring. (Food, herbs and flowers).   Gift cards at nurseries are great—we stay local as much as possible, so a donation of a gift card from your favorite local nursery would be a special student, business and garden support during these strange times!

Email gardenrgs@gmail.com if you have any items to donate or to get in touch about being a special adult volunteer.   Also feel free to have students send garden stories or questions of their own to our own master gardener.

Happy Gardening!
