Learning Garden Summer Veggie Watering

We're looking for some help with watering down at the Learning Garden beds over the summer. Some enthusiastic 6th graders planted vegetables - tomatoes, okra, peppers, eggplant, potatoes and herbs with cucumber and squash to follow soon - and we'd love to see them start producing and get to harvest throughout the summer and fall.

Below is a SignUp Genius and it would be super helpful if folks could pitch in, even just a couple of times. There is a hose and water spigot near the gardens, which makes things a lot easier, and instructions on how to get going can be provided. This a great chance to bring the kids to help and, as an added bonus, you should absolutely feel free to take home any veggies that are ripe for the picking!

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C094AA4A72EA5FC1-49851064-learning#/

We so hope to keep the garden thriving and if you're interested in vegetable gardening but can't have one at home, want to learn more or just think seeing growing vegetables is cool, this is the opportunity for you. Plus, free veggies….!

Mantua ES Read-A-Thon 2024! 

The 3rd Annual Mantua PTA Read-a-Thon Fundraiser will take place April 15-26. Over the course of these two weeks, students will be encouraged to read, read, read! Students can track minutes online and be eligible for some fun raffle prizes! This is one of our PTA's biggest fundraisers, so we thank you in advance for your support. 

Before the fundraiser begins, parents will have received an email link to the private donation page for their student directly from our fundraising platform 99pledges.  This page also serves as the tracker for your student’s time spent reading.  Donations are tax-deductible, and funds raised go directly toward educational needs at Mantua.

We encourage reading at all skill levels; every student can participate!

Mantua Garden April 14 Spring Clean-Up & Volunteers Needed!

The annual Spring Clean-Up will be held on Sunday, April 14 from 1-3 pm beginning in the Discovery Garden beds above the playground.

Gardeners of all ability are welcome; children (with parents) are encouraged to join in.

We will be trimming, weeding, edging, laying new compost/mulch, and adding new plants.

Volunteers Needed!

We are very lucky to get support from the PTA and the school, but we need volunteers to pitch in to ensure the gardens look their best throughout the year! Training can be provided for anyone who would like it! 

We are looking for support in these necessary tasks:

  • Weeding Crew (can be done when schedules permit)
  • Learning Garden (veggies!)
  • Watering Crew (June- August)
  • Learning Garden Helpers (assist teachers/students with seasonal plantings & harvesting)

If you are interested in getting your hands a little dirtier this year or would like to learn more, please contact Garden Committee Chair Karin Hudson at [email protected].

And make sure to check out our Facebook page, Mantua ES Garden Committee & Volunteers!
