Participating grades “adopt” the garden for one month out of the academic year. During their month of adoption, each classroom in that grade level commits to 30 minutes of service for garden maintenance and upkeep to help promote the concepts of citizenship, ownership, and responsibility to the natural environment around them. Service time provided counts towards the Garden Service patch, awarded to eligible individuals during SCS’s month awards assembly.
Volunteers Needed! SCS parents and family, participate with your child’s classroom in the Adopt the Garden program! The time commitment is 2 hours during their month of adoption (one hour training session, and one hour in the Garden with your child’s class). Please contact your child’s teacher to sign-up.
