 Greetings!   

 

Summer is almost here! Registration for Summer Camps and classes started April 22, and folks have already started signing up.  Many of our garden camps fill fast, so make sure you sign up soon! 

 

There is still space in our Spring Flower Art Discovery class for 7 to 12 year olds and our Kids in the Kitchen classes have open spots also. For more information on upcoming classes click here, for camps click here

 

Last month we were fortunate to have the help of Lake Oswego High School students and Lakeridge Junior High School students during their community service days.   Both groups were a delight to have in the Children's Garden, ridding the pathways of those pesky weeds.  This month the folks from New Seasons will be helping out.  If you'd like your group to have a volunteer experience with us just give a holler.

 

We are also hosting volunteer work parties where you can help with maintenance of the Children's Garden and learn about organic gardening. We have 8-20 x 20 beds that need weeding, watering, planting and mulching. Our next work party is Saturday May 18th from 1 to 3pm. Plan to join us in the beautiful setting of Luscher Farm.  

 

Our field trip volunteer roster still has openings, so we'd love to have your help in educating youth on the benefits of organic gardening. Please contact me for more information or to sign up!

 

Sincerely,

 

Children's Garden Coordinator
