2. Whittier Garden
Whittier Garden Planting Day
On Wednesday, May 22nd, we will be planting the Whittier Garden after school from 2:55-3:30. Students are welcome to help. If your child would like to stay and IS NOT
being picked up by you, please email Mrs. Gergits at email@example.com
and let her know your child’s after planting plans. Any parents that want to help are also welcome, please bring a hand shovel and a pair of gloves.
There are also a few slots still available for volunteering to water the garden over the summer. Duties would include visiting at least TWICE each week to water (hose will be available) and weed (bring your own garden gloves). CLICK HERE for the Sign Up Genius link below to see available weeks. We will send out reminders prior to your scheduled week.
Garden produce will be picked and delivered to People Resource Center in Westmont!
