Seeking Garden Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers for Garden Recess and Garden Maintenance Days.

screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-10-44-00-amThe Strawberry Fields produce garden, Habitat Garden and Outdoor Classroom are all gardens within Seth Boyden’s Outdoor Learning Center maintained by parent volunteers for your children to use during the school day. We are looking for volunteers. No garden experience or green thumbs required!

Garden Recess: When Strawberry Fields is open during recess, we need volunteers to set up pre-arranged activity stations, including art, harvesting, planting, weeding, eating, observing, and cooking. The children are also always welcome to experience the garden in an unstructured way. Garden Recess will take place on Fridays unless there are enough parents willing to staff another day.

Garden Maintenance Days: These occur on the weekends, but some tasks can also be done in the evenings. We gather as a community to tackle the larger projects that need to be done every spring and fall such as weeding, mulching, pruning and repairs. It is always a fun family event where children help and have fun playing with their friends while adults focus on the maintenance.
