girl_red_watering_can.jpg
The garden committee is pleased to report that $7,500 has  become available for immediate landscaping improvements: $2,500 from a Shared School Yard grant and $5,000 from a San  Francisco Unified School District Greening Stipend.  The garden team is meeting with Danny to discuss some projects for improving the school gardens and landscaping and have set the next Garden Workdays for 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4th and once a month for the rest of the year . Please join us! One known project is to rebuild the Oak tree irrigation system on the playground, which was unfortunately dismantled by students at recess. (Parents: please tell your children not to destroy the school's landscaping as there is a cost to rebuilding it)
Please join us in making the school yards as green and inviting as possible
