This Summer…

Look for a Signup Genius for watering our summer crops – tomatoes, sweet potatoes, okra, and soup beans – for next year’s Garden Gumbo!

Want to Get Involved in Garden Club?

We will need help parent help with our field trips to Academe of the Oaks, and hopefully a local farm! Also, help us implement a Junior Master Gardener’s program for all interested students! Parents also needed to help us reconfigure the garden space and add an arbor entry!

Way to Grow, Explorers!
