Calling all Green Thumbs! Fall Clean Up and Planting Day Sat 9/22

Calling all green thumbs and families interested in sustainability and eating homegrown, organic produce.

The Bonny Slope Garden serves as an edible classroom, where students can connect with the life cycle of plants and insects, observe the growth and abundance of vegetables, herbs and berries. 

This year, we are inviting classes to get growing in the fall garden. Right now, there are tons of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, kale and beans ready for harvest. Soon, we will plant fall and spring bearing crops like lettuce, spinach, leeks, onions, garlic and fava beans.

 With more than 20 4’ x 8’ plots and a large bed for corn, squash and melons, there are many ways to get involved!

  • Join us for occasional weekend planting and clean up days,

  • become the parent point person for your child’s class

  • assist with planning, planting and maintenance of the class bed or

  • adopt a bed for the summer.

 

Please email Christine (garden@bonnyslopebsco.org) or contact your child’s classroom coordinator to learn more.
