It takes a village, as the saying goes, to create opportunities for Albany kids for doing and touching and tasting and experiencing. That means we offer many opportunities for you to pitch in and opportunities for you to make a difference, with others or alone and with and without kids. Here are a few:
Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. at our Albany High School garden. Friends have been doing garden chores together for a couple of weeks now. And it would be great to have more company on June 16 and weeks beyond. We are extending a summer-long invitation to students to meet at this time as well, especially English-as-a-new-language students who have been getting hands dirty in the garden during classes their classes for several weeks.
Thursday, June 17, from 2 to 4 p.m. at our Myers Middle School garden. Our long-running after-school Garden Club, on hold for 14 months, started up again just in time to meet three times before the school year ends. This will be the final after-school get-together until September. three weeks ago.
Tuesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. at our Myers garden, throughout the summer, starting on June 22. We’ll communicate to kids that this is a summertime extension of our after-school Garden Club. Whether we attract many or few, it’s a great opportunity for friends to work together to ensure that the garden is ready for students when school opens in September.
Watering and weeding and completion of other garden chores independently at both locations, today through mid-October. We’ll create an online schedule and get back with more information.
Many thanks to many of you for years of support. Please stay tuned for more.
