Community Garden Volunteers Work the Dirt

Families are working and learning together this summer in our Forest View Courtyard Garden. Ms. Flowers teaches how to plant beans (“3 inches apart, which is about the size of a capital C”), sustainable gardening practices, and the joys of hard work on a hot day. Forest View alums, rising kindergarteners, and current students and their families pick garlic, chard, and beans, weed pathways, plant pumpkin seeds, clear flower beds, and talk about the upcoming school year. Our garden is lookin’ good! Want to volunteer for a few hours to help maintain our garden during summer break? Contact marylu.flowers-schoen@dpsnc.net or jaherndodson@gmail.com the Thursday before you’d like to work the dirt. Sat/Sun mornings work best.
