Garden Update Sept 14th
Community Work Day in the Garden
Join us in the Community Garden this Saturday for the Community Work Day and help get it ready for fall planting. Several beds are already with seedlings and growing strong, planted with zucchini, okra, beans, and Swiss chard. However many more beds are awaiting attention before we put them into production. Weeding, hand cultivating and composting all need to be accomplished this month to be ready for the temperature to drop bellow 100 degrees. This is the point in time that signals the moment seeds like carrots, lettuce and spinach can go into the ground and have a fighting chance to germinate and grow. Many hands are needed to make this happen and you do not have prior experience in gardening to help.
So put this Saturday the 15th on your calendar and meet Farmer Tony in the garden between 8 and Noon.
Please take a moment to see how one of our parents has already made a significant difference in your garden.
Biodynamic Stir Gathering
You are invited to a celebration of earth healing, this Sunday, at your school garden. An important Biodynamic preparation will be stirred and applied to the land of our school. This is done to help prepare the soil for the fall planting. It is a gathering of parents and students coming together to share in an important connection between us and our natural surrounding. We will met at the Straw bale Pavilion in the garden area, starting at 5PM and finishing just after sunset.
Testimonial from past Stirs:
The Biodynamic stir connected my children and I to the garden with meaning and purpose behind everything we do for the garden, spreading the stir throughout the garden after stirring for an hour was rewarding. Soon after our biodynamic stir attendance my children expressed much excitement in wanting to do more for the garden and with permission spread lady bugs at a fall sunset. Now we have done that twice and the experience is always very fun and exciting for our family. Nicole Brian, DMS parent
