Welcome Back Gardeners and Nature Lovers

After a wonderful summer we are all excited to start tending the many garden spaces we have created at SDCCS, in it's second season. Many families participated in watering and harvesting over the summer, taking good care and enjoying it's bounty...and for that we say THANKYOU!!! Now its time to think about fall planting and tending.
If you are interested in helping with your classroom garden plot, talk to your teacher about how you can get involved.
We will have a garden day on November 8th where we will begin to build the outdoor classroom, some more garden fencing, benches and general garden maintenance.

Hope to see you all in the garden!!
