The Garden Club

WHAT IS GARDEN CLUB?

Everyone in the Irving community belongs to Garden Club! There are two components to Garden Club.

  • One is a FREE after-school club (*Note that these meetings are currently on hold for the 2021-2022 school year*) that promotes the joy of discovery, learning, observation, hard work, patience, teamwork, and fun through gardening and growing healthy foods.  Garden Club provides students with hands-on experience in growing their own fruits and vegetables, discovering wildlife above and below ground, and tasting the results of their labor. We use sustainable and organic gardening practices to cultivate areas that will feed and sustain our native wildlife, especially our bees, bugs, and butterflies.
  • Garden Club volunteers also assist teachers in planting and harvesting with their classrooms. In the Spring and Fall, volunteers are needed to run activities and assist students in garden maintenance and care.

Contact Denise Frank to join in the fun — it’s time to get the Irving Garden growing and we need your help!

You can also offer to volunteer using our Sign-up Form. We will follow up with you with specifics after you sign up for a task. Feel free to sign up for more than one if you’d like.
 
It’s divided up by garden bed and each garden bed connects with a book that the plants will be themed on. Watch the video below for ALL the details. You do not need to know about gardening (we’re all still learning a lot, too!). The team will coach you and let you know what needs to be done. We will also practice safe social distancing.
Here’s Denise to explain how it all works….
 
Let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in the Garden!
