So What's This Swap All About?

The Salford Hills Veggie and Book Swap is an opportunity for our Salford Hills community to come together as neighbors.


Swap a Book

We meet around the back of the school where the garden is. Mrs. Connery, our Reading Specialist, has a generous selection of books spread across tables and we invite students to either swap a book with one of their own or just take one! There's a little something for everyone. from toddler board books all the way through books parents/guardians would enjoy. So bring the whole family!


Grab Some Veggies

Whether you have some veggies to share from your own garden or would just like to work in an around the garden, we hope you'll grab some veggies before you leave. This is our garden, a great big community garden to share with one another. What we grow in the garden is for everyone and we hope you'll enjoy what you take.


What Happens to the Leftovers?

If there are any leftover vegetables, a kind volunteer takes them to the Keystone Opportunity Center Food Bank in Souderton. In the past we've donated almost 1,000 pounds of produce to Keystone straight from our Salford Hills Garden.


The CROPS Garden: Feeding Ourselves, Feeding Others

There are two purposes to our garden initiative. We want to get vegetables into the hands of folks who may not have a garden of their own and would like to sample the freshness that only a home garden provides. But a second purpose is how the garden project compliments our social responsibility goals that is a large part of what we do at Salford Hills. We share our bounty with others, if and when we can. We feel this is an important teaching point for our students and the CROPS garden serves as a model.


Come

So now that you know a little more about the Swap and what it's all about, why not be a part of the whole experience. We'd love to see you!

Our Garden Has Never Looked Better

Thanks to a few kind and generous parent volunteers who purchased an efficient weed-blocker and made sure we had enough starter plants, our Salford Hills CROPS Garden has never looked better! With all the rain we've had, Mother Nature has certainly done her part, too! The purchase of these materials was all made possible thanks to Home & School and YOUR generous fundraising efforts!


We're hoping for a bountiful harvest this year. We hope you'll share in our success!

NOT Rain or Shine!

Because our swap activities are all outside in the Salford Hills "backyard", this event is weather dependent. Should there be a threat of rain or storms, we'll cancel. In such an event, look for an e-mail.


Finger's crossed for bright blue skies and lots of sunshine!
