Garden Club

Posted: March 10th, 2015

Earlier this school year, some of the students of St. Joseph School and their families gathered on a sunny Sunday afternoon in October to build the school gardens. Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Murray enlisted the help of a number of eager parents who arrived with tools and shovels in hand. Students were put to work sifting the compost while parents, under the guidance of Mrs. Laurie Hellstrom, (4th/5th grade parent) built the beds. Once the frames were complete, they were placed on the prepared site and then filled with the compost.

Since this garden building event, the Kindergarten class has planted garlic. They must now be patient and wait until spring to see what sprouts in the garden, and to plant any further crops! We are looking forward to starting some seedlings for spring planting, and possibly having a plant sale. Stay tuned for further updates!
