Grant awarded to After School Club! PC to help with programming.

The word is in... Planting Communities will be working with the Woodburn After School Program to establish a community/school garden at every school in Woodburn! Thanks to the hard work of the ASC folks and their efforts in getting us to be part of their grant we will make this dream a reality. Not only will there be a garden at every school but also a garden educational program at every school with a garden! Lots of work coming our way, let us know if you are interested in helping.

The reading of "The Curious Garden"

"The Curious Garden" was a hit! The Summer Reading Program: Dig into Reading has begun. We had a couple dozen children participating, getting their minds turning and their hands working. After reading aloud "The Curious Garden" we all went outside to plant the public library's very own curious garden. Everyone got to partake and plant their own little flower outside the children's section of the library. Hopefully this will keep them engaged in their own plants as well as take a little pride in the public space and their local public library.
The Curious Garden by Peter Brown, read aloud by Ian Niktab from Planting Communities.

Sprouting into action!

Giving some direction.

Planted and ready to grow.

Next up, Vermiculture with Brad Agenbroad and Planting Communities! This Wednesday, July 31st at the Woodburn Public Library.
