Garden & Grounds Work Day

Mark your calendars for our annual Spring Garden and Ground’s Work Day on Saturday, March 17th from 1:30-3:30 pm.  Come out and help with cleaning up the garden, installing rain barrels, repairing the wooden planters by the driveway, and other projects around our campus.  This is a parent or family work day.  We will have a sign up link activated soon for specific tools and materials we are in need of borrowing for the work day.  

The garden committee is also in need of a few more parents to help with coordinating volunteers for classroom trips to the garden, and to help with seeding for our annual plant sale later this Spring.  If you are interested in helping out then please contact the garden committee at:  garden@tes-ca.com.
 

The garden committee will be hosting their second annual Spring Plant Sale to raise funds for the TES garden.  You can either order plants ahead of time or shop the plant sale during student pick up in the upper parking lot, the week of April 22nd 

You can pick up your order on either of those days or you can arrange for another time to pick up your plants.  Martha can meet after drop off just about any morning that week.  You can pay for your plants when you pick up.  We will be able to take cash, check, or paypal.  ***Please email Martha before Sunday, April 21st and let her know what day you want to pick up your order.*** martha.pengelly@gmail.com

All the plants will be grown by TES students and parent volunteers.  We will use organic seed when available and organic potting soil.  Plants will be free of pesticides and ready to plant in your garden.  Choose from over 50 varieties of vegetables, herbs, and flowers!  New this year:  you can order plants for your child’s class to plant in the garden.

Pre-order your plants anytime before the plant sale through this order form:
