Junior Garden Clubs
Each month, from September to May, Garden Club members meet with fourth- and fifth-graders at a local school to teach gardening techniques and flower arranging.
These young gardeners have grown lettuce and spinach in an outdoor garden, planted dish and succulent gardens, and made beautiful flower arrangements to take home. All projects are hands-on–albeit, often dirty hands! If you’re interested in participating, please contact Jennifer Schwab.
December – Christmas Arrangements
The nine and ten-year-olds at All Saints School enjoyed working on their Christmas flower arrangements on December 20th. They combined Christmas greens, red and white flowers, gold painted pinecones, bells and ribbons, and snowmen stickers to shape their masterpieces. Then, they put on their festive Christmas hats and glasses for celebration photos! (Jeannette Michelson’s creative idea!)
