• What does our committee do?

    • Coordinates the Encinal Garden Program including organizing parent volunteers to teach indoor/outdoor garden lessons.
    • Ensure parent-volunteers have the resources and supplies they need to give teach garden class to students.
    • Guide directions/changes to the Garden Program.

    What types of responsibilities do our volunteers help with?

    • Communication with parents, HRP’s, and PTO, both electronic and in-person (e.g. Back to School Coffee).
    • Organizing general garden area maintenance.
    • Updating our Garden Class website.

    When do we need you?

    • The garden program is run throughout the entire school year with at least 1 parent volunteer per classroom.
    • Start-up time needed in Fall.

    How much time commitment is involved?

    • Garden classes are generally given once per month for 1 hour.

    Any special skills required?

    • No gardening experience required! We have easy to follow curriculum guides for each grade and you can also create your own curriculum. It’s entirely up to the parent-volunteers.
