About the Event

Come get your hands dirty in the SJES school gardens on Saturday, March 25 from 1pm-5pm! Volunteers are needed for maintenance and expansion of the school's vegetable and native plant gardens. Elementary-aged students and their parents are welcome; children must be accompanied by an adult. No gardening experience needed, high schoolers and boy scouts welcome! Call or text SJES mom Elaine Dubin to sign up at 540-273-2196 by March 22.

The school gardening program is also requesting donations of the following supplies:

  • Seed starting potting mix, such as the Miracle Gro brand in the blue bags from Home Depot (highest need!)
  • 3" or 4" individual plastic seedling pots
  • Tomato and pepper cages
  • Bagged garden soil
  • Bagged compost
  • Bagged mulch
  • Garden plant stakes, such as bamboo

Items can be dropped off at school. Thank you!
