Garden Workday, A HUGE Success!!

We had a great turnout of SDCCS Families& Teachers to help build an outdoor classroom, with benches & a platform. We also added 5 more raised planters to the garden, and a circular raised mosaic bed that will become a butterfly garden. In addition we made larger compost area's, redesigned some of the K-2 garden, and made cut out wood painted designs for the fences in the garden.

A special thank's to Shawn Strande who spent many hours planning, designing and building the Outdoor Classroom, Kit Camp for making some beautiful benches, Dan Renner for teaching us how to apply broken tiles and glass to create a beautiful mosaic design (and donating all those tiles!). Of course a huge thanks to everyone else who came to help build & create! We could not have accomplished this without you !!
