Pocket Meadow Coming to Doyle!
Doyle Elementary has been selected to receive a pocket meadow from Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve. This special habitat would serve as an outdoor classroom that supports and enhances current curriculum as well as provides food and shelter for native pollinators and butterflies. The installation date is yet to be determined. The Garden Committee is looking for committed volunteers who can help with one or more of the following things:
- help prepare the habitat site
- help install the plants
- be part of the water and weed crew (post planting).
If you would like to be a part of this extraordinary opportunity, please email Garden Committee Chair Barbara Kielbania at email@example.com. We will keep you updated as the project progresses. Thanks!
Volunteers for Garden Committee Needed
The garden committee is also planning to plant a vegetable garden in the fenced in area behind the school. We need volunteers to help weeding, preparing the soil, and planting and tending to the vegetables in the spring, throughout the summer and into the fall.
If you are interested to help, please contact Barb Kielbania at firstname.lastname@example.org.
