Imagine a garden that blooms for your child's imagination! Ruth Steinberg owner of Little Saplings spent this past Friday with our Early Childhood Learning Center (ECLC) students and parents setting up a permanent, edible, garden for our Outdoor Classroom.
In a Partybook style fundraiser, hosted by ECLC moms Diana Makkabi, Eliana Rokach and Jesica Gabayan, the students had a hands-on experience learning a love of gardening and the outdoors. The fundraiser made a little over $800 for our Parent Assistance League (PAL) which will go toward our upcoming renovation projects and facilities upgrades!
Diana Makkabi, mom to Elle (4) and Gia (almost 2) said “not only will each child go home with their own plant, what is extra special about this event is the children will be planting a permanent edible garden that they will enjoy the rest of the year. Our children can benefit from this garden and literally harvest what they plant and eat it throughout the year.” Thank you for your dedication Diana, Eliana and Jesica, and our other ECLC families! There will be many more opportunities for participating in fundraising throughout the year.
