Garden Update

Thank you for supporting the plant sales before Christmas time. The money raised has so far gone toward purchasing bags of soil for the garden. After school today, a team of gardening enthusiasts including Education Assistant, Claudia Clarke, Wendy Gilson (a community gardener), parents Wieteke Verhoeven and Chris Drake, and Mike Davis (SD64 maintenance) are meeting to discuss the workings of the greenhouse. The goal is to look over the garden and come up with a "to-do" list. Once we know what is needed parents are welcome to come on their own time or participate in work parties --- whatever works for you!  A new batch of spider plant babies are being potted up today by our Fernwood Germinators and will be on sale soon (thank you to Kaelen and Claudia!).
