Saturday, September 6th
9 am – 3 pm
Lunch provided from the garden

Come help raise the roof…. or rather the walls … of the 20 ft x 48 ft hoophouse being built at the School Farm! We’ll have all the trusses up by then and need help with the endwalls and sidewalls of this metal frame structure, manufactured by OBC Northwest.

We will be growing vegetables for the school cafeteria, and also having indoor classroom space for garden curriculum in this semi-gable hoophouse.

Email schoolgardenswhidbey@gmail.com, or call Cary at 360-221-6046 for more information. Please RSVP so we can organize the teams and the tasks.

Or just drop by to see the fun in action and tour the school farm! Come see what we’re doing to integrate garden curriculum into the Common Core standards, while also growing fresh food for the school lunches, for WIN, and for the Good Cheer Food Bank.
