GARDEN WORK PARTY  --  SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24 AT 8AM

Hello there!

While green and bountiful, the Westwood Charter Garden is in need of your help! 

I would like to invite you and your family to join me on Saturday, February 24th from 8am-10am for a Garden Work Party. With the help of you and your children, the garden will be able to thrive that much more fully in this drier than expected winter season. 

With your help at this Garden Work Party, I hope to accomplish the following:

-Cover the outdoor classroom flooring with wood chips (will help to contain dust back there)
-Plant seedlings in veggie and butterfly gardens 
-Clean up around the garden beds/outdoor classroom/planted areas behind the 4/5 classes
-Mulch trees throughout campus with donated mulch

These days are truly delightful! Delicious snacks and coffee are always provided for volunteers, as well as, incredible opportunities to build community by getting to know other students and parents passionate about helping the WWC garden grow! All students and parents are welcome!

Below include the meeting instructions for the Saturday, February 24th Garden Work Party:

Time: 8am-10am

Location: Please enter the school at the back gate on Overland Avenue, just north of Mississippi Avenue. There will be a sign denoting where to enter.

Special instructions: Please feel free to bring your own gloves, shovels, water bottles, hats, and sunscreen!

I look forward to gardening with you! If you're interested in attending the work day, please let your room rep know, so that we can count you in for attendance. 

Any questions please email me tate.wwcgarden@gmail.com

Appreciatively,

Ms. Tate (WWC Garden Teacher)
