Leaves, Leaves, and More Leaves! We read a story about a winter garden, played in the leaves, made two scarecrows, and enjoyed the beautiful weather playing in the garden.  We had 30 kids!  We also were blessed to have Rouha visit today.  Starbucks supplied cake pops and hot chocolate for today's festivities.

Read a book called kindness is a superpower, are snacks from smiths and Victoria sugar shack, made valentines using seeds and played in the dirt.


Birds in the Garden: March 25, 2022

Birds children's Event.  Today we had about 40 kids.  We read and talked about birds, moved soil to the garden, painted bird houses, met Dora the chicken, and had an egg hung.  Lots of fun.  A big thank you to our volunteers and parents who help make these things happen.


Planting Day, April 8, 2022

Wow, what a day! We had over 50 kids!  We colored 50 bags for the upcoming appreciation day, we planted our own green bean cups, we ate from ms sweet pea's garden, and read 'Lola plants a garden'.  Today would not have been possible without our amazing volunteers and donations.  Big thanks to Denise, Lori, Musick family, Victoria, Lainey, Jennifer, the Girl Scouts, and Ashley for helping with misc things.  Looks amazing everyone.
