Summer Garden Help Needed!

Students from the lower school have had a lot of fun in the garden this Spring and we would like to see their plants thrive through the summer and maybe even still be alive when they come back in August.  The garden committee is hoping some of you can spend an hour in the garden over summer break doing some light weeding and watering to keep the garden looking great.  More information is on the sign up genius and if you have any questions you can contact Martha Pengelly at garden@tes-ca.com.

From all of us at the Garden Committee, we just wanted to say THANK YOU for supporting the TES garden through our third annual plant sale.  We had another hugely successful sale this year.  The money we raised will go towards future garden projects and upkeep.  This year we were able to install rain barrels in both the upper and lower school gardens, buy new tools for the upper school garden, add more compost to the lower school garden, and buy more seeds and plants for students to keep on growing.  
 
  Also, we do have a few plants left after the sale so if you lose any of your plants for whatever reason, I may be able to get you a replacement.  Lastly, if you ended up with a plastic tray or crate from the sale you are welcome to bring it back to the lower school garden if you aren’t able to reuse it.  

Garden & Grounds Work Day

Mark your calendars for our annual Spring Garden and Ground’s Work Day on Sunday, 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.  Please sign-up below 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.
