Worker Bee Wednesdays

    ​​​

    ​Community Montessori has a school garden maintained by parents and students.

    Our school participates in Growe Foundation's Garden-to-Table program.  Since 2010 we've been cultivating an amazing community garden in our school courtyard where our students enjoy engaging, hands-on lessons about plants, insects, weather, soil, nutrition, economics, history, and more.  For more information, please view our Garden-to-Table website​.  From time to time, classroom teachers reach out to parents for help supporting lessons in the garden during the school day. 

    Volunteers Needed!

    During the growing season, parents and students come together after school to maintain and enjoy the gardens.  Check the Buzz and keep an eye on emails from SchoolMessenger for the announcement of our next Worker Bee Wednesday.  We meet from 2:45pm—3:45pm in the courtyard.  This is a great way to support our community garden and outdoor environment, learn about gardening, and meet other families.  Please bring your shovels and gloves if you have them.  In September there will be some vegetables to harvest.  In October, we will harvest pumpkins and then put the garden to sleep for the winter by removing annuals, raking up leaves, and dig in compost.  April and May we work to wake up the garden.

    ​Over the summer, we rely on volunteer families to keep our garden healthy.  An online sign up link goes out via SchoolMessenger email at the end of the school year. ​  Please contact the school office if you are interested in helping.
