Friday Garden Club

Irving’s Garden Club is in full swing! We hope to see you in the Irving Garden, right after school at 3pm on Fridays; garden club is free, all are welcome, and please bring your grown up to enjoy the garden with you.

This Friday, 5/19: Special guest Senorita Zaragoza will lead us in a celebration of tamales; we’ll read “May your life be Deliciosa,” sample tamales, and plant some ingredients necessary to make a tamal and accompanying salsa: corn, tomatillos, and spicy peppers. (Grown ups, please check in with Alix,, if your child has any food allergies or restrictions).  We will also plant our sunflower house, among other fun garden activities. 

Memorial Day weekend 5/26: Help us continue our celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Month by celebrating and planting Chinese vegetables and reading “Ugly Vegetables,” a story about a Chinese American girl who makes soup from her garden that the whole neighborhood loves, bringing everyone together. Taste and enjoy satsuma oranges and roasted kabocha squash (let Alix, know of any food allergies). We’ll be planting seeds and plants, finding lots of insects, a nature craft and more!! 

Friday 6/2:   Help us prepare our garden for our summer send off. We will finish planting our garden beds with yummy summer veggies and beautiful flowers. And we’ll beautify our garden with a nature craft (nature mobiles to hang from our garden trees).
