About D-E Garden Project

Help keep our beautiful teaching gardens in shape by participating in three annual work parties and signing up to water the vegetables and take care of the chickens during school holidays. Garden Parents also serve as “critical friends” by listening to students who are planning, planting and building and offering questions and suggestions from an adult perspective.

Volunteers Needed!

In addition to innumerable willing worker bees with any level of experience, the Garden Project needs a work-party coordinator who will reach out to us all, collect RSVPs and organize refreshments.
