The Vanderburg Garden
Garden Club Participants consist of 4th/5th Grade Students
Here at Vanderburg Elementary School, we have a school garden. The students have recently been spending some time after school to learn about gardening. The students have the opportunity to learn about plants, soil, growing a garden, and composting. In our garden we have vegetables, flowers, herbs, and lemon trees. In the past we have planted strawberries, which make the birds quite happy.
We also have a "Kinder"-Garden that was built by kindergarten families. These younger gardeners consist of kinder teachers and their classes along with Mrs. Chess and her preschool kiddos. They each help out to plant in the garden and keep it up.
We have been hosting an annual Salad & Salsa Night, BUT this year we are giving it a new name... Garden Fiesta Night! The choir students will be performing for your listening pleasure. Tickets are $10 each and children 5 and under are FREE. There will be a parent volunteer meeting on April 24th at 7:35am (after many choir parents drop off their children for practice). Come to Mrs. Cheetany's science room to be part of all the fun! If you can't make it to the meeting, there will be a signup icon where you can support us by donating various items or your time. Thank you in advance!
