Garden Club – Spring 2020

Does your child like to play in the dirt? Does he/she like to plant seeds and watch plants grow? Is your child interested in growing their own food or learning how to compost? Then the Northwoods School Garden Club might be the club for your child! This spring, we are offering a Garden Club for students in both grades K-2 and grades 3-5. We will meet for 6 mornings on the following dates:

As noted above, the sessions for 3-5 will run from 8:00-8:45 AM and the sessions for K-2 will run from 8:15-8:45 AM. Due to the short length of time, please arrive on time. Children should be dropped off at the garden at the start time or can be picked up at Before Care at that time.

If you are interested in signing up your child, please email your child’s name, grade, and if they will be dropped off or need to be picked up from Before Care to koalatygarden@gmail.com. Thank you!
