Willow Springs Garden News

Did you know we have our very own vegetable garden right behind our school?  We do and we can’t wait for this year’s growing season!!! However, in order to have another successful year we could use your help.  If you are able to help with any of the following items, please email Megan Lewis to let her know – mlewis@wcpss.net

*Person to help with our irrigation system

*Person to put up a reinforcement mesh around our fence

*Person to put air in our wheelbarrow tires

*People to help harvest/weed in the peak season

*Donation of cardboard boxes over the next 2 weeks

*Flower garden experts to help with our border garden

*Person to touch up the paint on the garden entrance sigh and other items

*Businesses or people to donate lunch for about 12 high school students who run our planting days at the end of April

We also need people to deliver our extra produce to our local food pantry.  Please email Stephanie Weeks if you are willing to help with this:  sweeks@wcpss.net

If you are willing to help deliver prepared food to classrooms so that our students may taste the produce we grow in our garden, please email Alex Humphries:  ahumphries@wcpss.net
