Celebrate Dunbar School garden


Dunbar School

Saturday April 4th 2015 - 10:00am to

On Saturday, April 4, just after the annual Glen Ellen Fire Department Easter Egg Hunt, Dunbar School will hold its annual Garden Celebration and Work Party.

Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., come visit the teaching garden, take a tour, shop for seedlings, learn about the school’s garden curriculum, and roll up your sleeves to put in a little bit of work on one of the projects of the day. There will be snacks and drinks (including coffee) and fun activities for the kids. Students love to tour their families around the garden, so stop by and let them tell you all about it.

Dunbar’s PTO-sponsored garden teacher Alissa Pearce will be on hand, as well as PTO-sponsored science teacher Shannon Lee so that they can address questions regarding enrichment programs at the school and fill you in on exciting future plans for the garden. On that day Dunbar will be kicking off a Challenge Grant Direct Donation Drive that will continue through June 1.

One anonymous donor has pledged $5,000 to the Friends of Dunbar School PTO to be earmarked for funding garden instruction, on the condition that the school raises matching funds from the community. If you would like to be part of this effort to raise $5,000 by June 1, any level of contribution would be appreciated. Make check payable to FODSPTO, with subject: garden drive, and drop off at the school front office or mail to FODSPTO, P.O. Box 1713, Glen Ellen, CA 95442.
