Madrona K-8 garden needs volunteers

The chilly weather makes it seem like spring, let alone summer, is still far off. But there’s plenty blooming in the Madrona Learning Garden on the south side of the school building.

If you’d like to pitch in, PTSA president Rita Sheckler is hosting open garden time the first Sunday of every month from 10am-12pm. The time and date are flexible depending on interest and availability.

The garden already has funding for a watering system and an art project to paint the shed, but they need help from volunteers to handle watering and help out during the summer months.

The plot features a butterfly garden, an herb garden, the 3rd grade’s “pizza garden” (growing ingredients for pizza), a preschool bed, a kindergarden bed and a bed by the local Girl Scout troop.

If you’re interested in helping, contact Rita at [email protected].
