New Emerson seeks help with garden
Students at New Emerson Elementary School are in the beginning stages of planting a school garden and are seeking assistance from the community.
Donations of materials — trowels, rakes and hoes for 30 students are needed, as well as sponsorship of start-up plants, soil and containers, and sponsors of gardening equipment to set each classroom up with materials for every child. Items such as wheelbarrows and garden gloves are also needed, along with seeds, starter plants, stakes and string, soil, watering cans, containers, bird feeders, birdseed and gardening books.
If your business has experts in the fields of design, landscaping, gardening and science, a donation of time to help kids learn about what it takes to manage and keep a garden thriving would be welcome.
