Summer School Gardening

You may have noticed the seasonal transformation of our school garden on the corner of Niagara and Adelaide.  Spring showers, sunshine and a fresh layer of cedar chips have set the stage for our blossoms and plants to finally flourish.  A few seeds and flowers in our urns has also cheered things up a bit but we really need some perennials.

Consider this a call out for parental participation that will enhance the school’s outer green space.  In other words, we are asking for perennial donations!  Planting a dozen (or two) perennials would make the garden truly come to life.

This is your chance to decorate the exterior with flowers of your choice (consider low sun exposure, seasonal blooming) and colour.  You have the power to flower!

All donated plants can be dropped off just outside the Daycare office.  Our parent volunteer gardener (thanks Peter) will take care of the dirty work for you.

Thank you in advance!
