Garden Club at Park View School

Park View

 

At Park View School, students participate in a garden club. Every year in the Spring, students in the club contribute to a beautiful flower garden and they take care of the grounds in the front of the school.

With the help of several teachers and a volunteer parent, the students test soil. They learn the difference between annuals and perennials. They pull weeds. They learn about different plants. They replace wood chips and they water the gardens throughout the summer.

The Garden Club is an after school program and has been a wonderful experience for everyone involved.
