Jacob's School Kids Gardening Project
Jacob Beidler Elementary School Community garden just got a generous donations from Open Lands, so that the children in Pre K - 3rd grade could plant flowers in their container gardens. The teachers scheduled a work day with their class. Each class filled large containers with dirt that was delivered on Tuesday, and came out on Thursday morning to plant the flowers into the large Terra cotta planters.
The children were excited, and loved how beautiful they were able to make their school. The same children participated in a "Saturday Clean UP Day", were they picked up trash around the school, planted tulip bulbs that were donated by the Garfield Park Conservatory bulb giveaway.
The master gardener/consultants at City escape garden center & design studio helped make decisions on the arrangements.
