About the event:

This event is part of our Open School Garden volunteer day series, on the weekend of April 13th and 14th. For more participating sites, please check out the Open School Gardens event listing.

Earn service hours by volunteering at Shore Acres Elementary School as part of Open School Gardens weekend! This is a great way to get involved in your community, spend time outdoors, and work on some hands on projects. 

About the Garden: This is the first year Shore Acres elementary has had outdoor Garden Class with Growing Healthy Kids! Students have been excited to incorporate outdoor learning in their day, and taken advantage of opportunities to taste new foods and plant new plants in the garden. Community volunteers have played a big role working with Garden Educator Jessie Lawson to develop the garden space and make it an exciting outdoor classroom for students grades TK - 5. Lend your hand to this latest work day as the community works to further establish and beautify the garden classroom as a home for students!

Help needed: At this work day, volunteers will:

  • Plant
  • Spread Mulch
  • Fill garden beds with soil
  • Work on other garden maintenance tasks!

Student Service Hours: Service Hours are availible for MDUSD students seeking credit. Be sure to bring any paperwork you need signed with you.

Access Notes: There will be no open bathroom on site, so please plan accordingly. If you have any other questions, please get in touch with us!

You should Bring: Bring a rake, hat, or garden gloves if you have them! For your comfort, please bring a water bottle, hat, and/or sunscreen.
