Hello Gardeners!
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 gardens (outdoor classroom garden boxes, new shade perennial garden beside the bike rack, blue canoe, shrubs and troughs in the kindergarten yard) 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 (if you have questions about what to weed and what to keep in the ground, please ask!).
When you get to the garden, unlock the box (The code for the lock box is 1-3-5-7) and find 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.
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 27th.

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 often our kids love joining in to care for the school grounds.

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.  Often if you set up the hose in the kindergarten yard during daycare hours, you will have plenty of children who will do the job for you!

We urge you to donate a week of your time!


Thank you very much,

The Garden Committee

P.S. You are free to help yourself to peas, greens, herbs and any tomatoes that may come to fruition, and don’t forget the Saskatoon berries.
