Charlemagne After-School Club News
Garden Club is under way!!
Thanks to everyone who helped out with the garden work party! Take a minute this week and walk down there to check out the fifteen new raised beds. Yes, fifteen! A big thank you to the businesses that donated or provided discounted materials. Thanks to the parents who sought out cardboard, procured manure, delivered hay, and loaded dozens of wheelbarrows with soil and wood chips. Some cleanup and finishing work needs to be done in the next couple of weeks, then the beds will be planted with cover crop for the winter. This spring we hope to see every class out there planting their own bed!
We could still use some help. People with pickup trucks or trailers are needed to haul debris out for recycling. Plants are needed for the perimeter, specifically deer resistant ones like lavender, oregano, chives, etc. This is the time of the year that local nurseries offer deep discounts, and they will be able to advise about a plant’s deer resistance. We could also use a few big outdoor planters.
