Quilcene School Garden – help launch it into a great new future

The Quilcene School Garden is expanding, improving, set to become the biggest and best “garden to cafeteria” program in the County. The kids are excited and the new Garden Coordinator is amazing! Students will learn not only how to plant, grow and harvest their own garden produce, but will enjoy the “fruits” of their labor at lunch time. This program will change eating habits and improve nutrition for a lifetime!

> Many of the garden beds are newly tilled and weeds need removing, soil needs improving, and new pathways need covering with weed barrier and chips. It’s way too much for one young women to get done in time for planting the seedlings that are already sprouting in the greenhouse.

> Let’s help her out!

> Kate has developed a schedule for community volunteers to join her in the garden when the kids are not having lessons there. Bring your own basic garden tools if you can. And be prepared to get dirty! You’ll leave tired but gratified that you’ve made a real difference for the kids and the School.

> Here’s the schedule . . . come down for one or more hours at any of the following days/times from now until the end of April. Note that sooner is better than later because the new seedlings need to get in the ground!

> Wednesdays from noon to 3:00
> Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00
> These Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00 — March 26, April 2 and April 16
