Garden club spring kickoff

It’s Spring and that means GARDEN CLUB is starting back up! Join us this Friday 4/21 right after school for our spring kickoff!

Help Irving’s Garden Club celebrate Earth Day and welcome spring into our garden. There’s something for everyone! We’ll start cleaning up the garden to get ready for early planting; we’ll check out our mulch bin, see what insects we can find and learn how we compost; we’ll take a field trip around the school to pick up garbage and help beautiful our shared space. Learn about native (to Illinois) plants and why they’re worth celebrating. Finally, we’ll cover our R’s and Z’s: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, and Zero Waste.

Garden Club is free and all are welcome! **The only requirement is to come with your grownup, as otherwise we don’t have enough adults to help keep kids safe while we work with tools.**
