Summer Garden Help Needed
The school garden will continue to grow throughout the summer, but helpers are needed! 

Could your family help? All school families are encouraged to visit the garden whenever it fits your schedule. If you see weeds, pull them. If the soil seems dry, water it. If vegetables and herbs are ready to harvest, take them. It is simple to help! "Papa Jack" Rekstis, our true garden expert, will be found working in the garden many days this summer...but needs your help. 

No sign-up necessary...just come when you can!
