You are invited to join Miss Laura, Related Arts Garden/Environmental Science Teaching Artist, for outdoor garden work at the MCPK on Saturday, June 5th, 10:00 - 11:30am.
What: Our outdoor space needs some TLC! We will weed, prune, and do some work to get our gardens in order including our Herb Garden, Edible Garden, Butterfly Garden, and Four Season Garden. This will be our first chance to welcome families to work together outside since Family Garden Day in April of 2019!
Who: Families and children are invited. No garden experience necessary! If you plan to bring your child(ren), please arrange to have one adult supervising - friend, partner, spouse, caregiver - so that someone is free to work on the garden. Children will be welcome and encouraged to work on the garden with supervision.
COVID Safety: The building will NOT be open for bathrooms. Masks will be required for adults and children, while on school property. We will observe social distancing.
Bring: Your own labeled water bottle and snacks; pruners, shears, rakes, also labeled with your name if you have them (not necessary to attend!). Garden gloves if you like to wear them. Dress for the weather and to get dirty - sneakers or boots! Sunscreen and a hat. We are very much in need of weed whacking - please bring if you have one! In addition, if you would like to donate and bring annuals for us to plant - that would be lovely. Petunias, geraniums, zinnias, impatiens...any would be welcome.
Where: Enter through the driveway gate on Education Drive between the MCPK and the Board of Ed. 49 Orange Road, Montclair.
What else? We will have perennials to share as we divide them - perennial geranium, lamb's ear, golden rod, phlox. Plenty of cilantro!
RSVP REQUESTED to Miss Laura

Be in touch as well, with any questions.
I am grateful beyond words for the opportunity
to welcome you back into our space.
Your friend in dirt,
