The first garden committee meeting of the 2022-23 School year is on Thursday, September 22 at 7 pm via Zoom. Please join us! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Here at Ecole St. Catherine's School, we are fortunate to have a wonderful school garden. The garden gives our students opportunities to learn about food production and nutrition and provides a hands-on, outdoor, experiential learning environment for all our students.
WHERE ARE THE GARDENS?
The main vegetable garden is the long plot all along Edgewood Avenue where most of the food is grown.
There is a butterfly garden also along Edgewood Ave. between the school doors and the walkway to the schoolyard.
There is a small perennial bed by the school front door on Connolly Street.
HOW CAN I SUPPORT THE GARDEN?
The school garden is run entirely by volunteers. We would love to have more parents help support the garden! Many hands make light work for all. There are many ways to support the garden, including one-time small jobs. No gardening experience is necessary (it's a great way for adults to learn about gardening too!). Some of the jobs include:
- Help a class in the garden (e.g., harvesting or planting seeds) (1-2 hour time commitment)
- Lead or join a Weeding Wednesday night during the summer and early fall (June to September) (1-2 hour time commitment)
- Help with organizing or attend bigger events like the spring and fall garden clean ups or the harvest lunch (1-6 hour time commitment)
- Become a member of the garden committee to help with organizing the work (1-2 hours/month)
If you would like to help with any of the above tasks, or to join our mailing list, please get in touch with us at email@example.com
