Come join our garden and sustainability team, Steph, Vinnie, and Michelle, for an all-school Garden Day. The SES gardens are critical to our curriculum and our identity as a school and it takes everyone to keep them in good shape. This is one of only two major gardening events this year, so please come for all or part of the day. Here’s what we hope to get done: add compost to some of the beds; lay bark mulch on paths, prune the native gardens, move yard waste piles to a dumpster, clean up all garden bed edges.

We need both worker bees and leaders to oversee the various projects. It helps if you RSVP to our sustainability team ( so they know how many folks to expect—they only have a handful who have responded so they’re feeling worried. Of course, we won’t turn anyone away!
