School-Wide Family Garden Day this Saturday 1/12

Breaking News!
Our school has just been cleared for our next...

School-Wide Family Garden Day at El Jardin del Paraiso
This Saturday, April 12th  from 10:00 am to Noon

Come on out, get dirty and have some fun!
This will be a rock, stick, stone and mulch morning, with BYO-picnic lunch to follow. 
All families and age groups are invited.  Our garden projects and events are all funded, supported and run by parents like you so we need your help!

We'll be working throughout the garden on different tasks cleaning up after our very busy little gardeners. Throughout the fall and winter months their daily work takes quite a toll on all the community areas. We will be digging and scouting for river rocks that have been lost to return them to their home in the stream and around the pond as well as sorting, carting, repairing walls, creating stick teepee's and moving the earth about.

We do this in order to prepare for the many school events that are planned for the 2014 season ahead: Garden Plant Dye Cafe, Picnics, Spring Fair...

As always we invite you all to consider becoming garden members and having a personal family membership to El Jardin del Paraiso. Their official annual membership and work day will be Saturday, April 27th, so this is a great chance to check it out before then! 

Thank you so much from the Garden Committee, the Teachers and Faculty of New Amsterdam, and of course the unspoken gratitude of the young souls who romp with spirit, vigor, and delight in a clean garden through out the year!

RSVP's  to garden events are always greatly appreciated.  Please feel free to ask questions or RSVP- Shoshanas@mac.com and see you soon in the garden!

The Garden Address is 311-321 E. 4th Street (between Avenues C & D).
