Kid Garden Spring Activities 2018
I will be available to work with classes on Mondays during school, or by special request, starting the first week of May.
Seed Starting Day

8:15 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.: classrooms will be scheduled for a 15-minute session in the cafeteria.
“Building Healthy Soil”
Grade level lessons and materials will be available in the garden shed starting the first week of May. A copy of the lesson can be emailed ahead at your request.
Classes are encouraged to come out at the teacher's convenience. If help is required, feel free to contact me and schedule a time to meet in the garden.
School-wide Planting Day open during class time and recess. Please contact me to schedule a time for your class to plant seedlings on this day.
After school plant sale and activities in the garden at 3 p.m. – 4 p.m.
New Garden Bed
You may have noticed a beautiful new raised bed in the garden. This was built by volunteers from the Lions Club of Cooperstown. We will use the bed to plant potatoes this season. If you would like your classroom to plant potatoes, please let me know. I hope to do this as early as the first week in May.
I look forward to seeing you all in the Garden this Spring!
