Summer is approaching and once again the Garden Committee is looking for parents to sign up for a week of summer watering. By signing up for the summer watering schedule your job is to make sure the front gardens (outdoor classroom garden boxes, new shade perennial garden beside the bike rack, blue canoe) get watered as needed (probably 2-3 times per week depending on rain).It would also be helpful to do a bit of weeding when you are in the garden.
When you get to the garden, open the storage box and find a bag with the hose and the water key (it looks like a tool more than a key). Hook up the hose, turn the key and the water should be flowing. During the week from 7:30 am-6:00 pm the daycare is open so you are able to find the caretakers if you have any difficulties with the water hook up.
For those of you who are new to summer watering, we will hold a brief orientation from 8:15-8:45 am in the front garden/outdoor classroom on Tuesday June 26th. Please feel free to forward this schedule to any other parents you think would be interested in helping out. It is a fun way to stay connected to the school in the summer and get your kids involved in caring for the school grounds.

Thank you very much,
The Garden Committee
P.S. You are free to help yourself to peas, greens, herbs, cucumbers and any tomatoes that may come to fruition, and don’t forget the Saskatoon berries!
