Fern Garden Planting and Garden Keepers - Volunteers Needed!

Once again, the Eco-club will be leading the school in a planting and nurturing Fern School’s front gardens this month.

We are planning to refresh the existing planting of the Fern Avenue front gardens with new plants that focus on: wildlife habitat for birds and bees, a three sisters garden to celebrate food and heritage and a focus on bringing beauty and colour to the school’s front yard.

Classes will help with the planting on Friday June 17. If you are interested in helping out in the morning and/or afternoon please let us know (Melanie at 416.516.6028; mhds230@gmail.com).

We are also looking for volunteers to help us tend the gardens over the summer months. Last summer we had a number of families (thanks Garden Keepers!) who stewarded the gardens and new trees by watering and weeding over the summer - each taking a stint of one week.

We are looking for volunteers again this summer. If every volunteer family could commit to watering and tending the gardens for just one week in the summer, we can ensure efforts of our students are sustained through the hot months. If you are able to take on a few days or even a week (only 2-3 waterings) over the summer please let Mdm Tse or Melanie Hare know at mhds230@gmail.com or 416-516-6028.

Hoping you will join eco-school and our students as Garden Keepers and help to create an enriching school yard environment.
