Earth Week

April 11-15, 2011

Hello everyone!

Madera GardenFirst of all I would like to thank everyone who came out and hauled soil on Saturday.  It was great to have so many enthusiastic helpers.  Work shared goes quickly and is much more enjoyable.

I just wanted to remind everyone that EARTH WEEK is next week.  Here are a few details you might want to know:

1.  The last day to sign up for our free “green” classes is this Wednesday (April 6th). At least two of these classes are in danger of being canceled due to low enrollment.  If you are interested, or you think a friend, aunt, neighbor, or grandparent might be interested, please see the information at the end of this email about how to sign up.

2. Please join us for our Garden Open House after school on Friday, April 15th from 3-4.  Come and see all of the art work and hard work students have done in the garden.

3.  We still would love to have a few more folks volunteer to help out with the class visits to the garden.  If you volunteer, you would either get to help students plant, or you would be talking with them about ways they can help the earth.  Here are the spots that are still open:

  • Monday, April 11th from 9:45-10:45 (Mr. Trampleasure), 11:05-12:00 (Ms. Phillips)
  • Tuesday, April 12th from 8:40-9:40 (Ms. Heydon), 11:05-12:00 (Ms. Dorn/Mekjian), and 12:05-1:05 (Ms. Cary)
  • Wednesday, April 13th from 9:45-10:45 (Ms. Bashor), and 11:05-12:00 (Ms. Woody)
  • Friday, April 15th from 11:05-12:00 (Ms. Reyes) and 1:10-2:10 (Ms. Nels)

Thank you so much for your support,
Molly Wahl
