Cornwall Kids Garden

Chairperson / Sarah Conville /saraheconville@gmail.com
We are looking for parent volunteers to help the garden team facilitate various learning activities for students in grades 2-4. Activities and themes include: planting, garden cycles, pollinators, soil, composting, harvesting, and of course eating! We take classes outside to the garden in fall and spring growing seasons. We also are in need of volunteers to care for the garden over the summer—to help weed and water. No experience necessary!
