Fisher Farms Update

Spring 2015

Fisher Farms is Underway and we need YOUR help!

Our school garden project, "Fisher Farms," is progressing quickly and we are SO EXCITED! We are sending out a request for any volunteers to join us on Friday, May 8 from 3:30-5:30 to help move the compost from the pile into each of the 17 raised garden beds. We would need available families to bring a wheelbarrow and a shovel. Please be aware this is a work-zone, so you would need to keep a close eye on your child/ren. Having a parent and their child work together to help fill the garden beds will be a memorable experience that benefits the entire Fisher and local community!

We are seeking volunteers that are parent/child groupings. We cannot have a student on site unless they are accompanied by, and working with, an adult.

Please sign up through the link below so that we know how many people can help us, many hands make light work!

Thank you!
