By now most of you are aware of the PTO/Donor sponsored School Garden and Outdoor Classroom project, as a flyer was sent home November 21st. Recapping the letter, we have already secured one grant from the Chestnut Grove Foundation, and we are in the process of seeking funds from additional grants as well as local and outside businesses. We want to extend this opportunity to you to support this project as one of our Founding Families. Be sure to share this exciting news with your extended family, as well. Our goal is to raise $8,000 for Phase 1 of the project. Donations will be used toward the costs of the following:
- 11 raised-bed boxes
- potting table
- tool shed
- 3 compost bins
- 5 round container planters, 3 oblong containers
- Tools & supplies for student, teacher & volunteer use
Would you please consider donating to this project? No donation is too small! To recognize your gift, names of the Founding Families will be displayed in the garden. We are looking in to a number of creative ways to do this, and will provide details as they become available. Look for the following in the near future: a garden newsletter blog which can be assessed from our school website and in the lobby display case entitled “As the Garden Grows”.
Thank you in advance for your support.
