 Outdoor Classroom and Garden
A group of enthusiastic TPES parents and community volunteers 
are kicking off plans to expand the raised bed planting area into 
 a TPES Outdoor  Education Classroom and Garden and
 WE NEED  YOUR HELP!  Imagine  your kids having class outside  planting,  growing, harvesting and then  composting their very  own food  and while taking in scientific facts related to biology and ecology. The more support we can find from our parent community the more our garden
and children will grow.  

Can you help on Wednesdays after school?  Sign up here.
Want to see the master calendar? Here it is.

Can you shovel dirt, build planter boxes, or water plants?  Want to get more involved, have idea, or just want to learn more?  

Let us know by emailing Cindy Hazuka at OutdoorClassTPES@gmail.com.

SDUSD is starting a Garden-to-Cafeteria program where food grown on campus can be served at the lunch salad bar.  Then you can compost the leftovers! Let us know if you want to get involved
