Hiawatha Garden

Raised Garden Bed Prep and Landscaping Clean Up
April 23, 2016

We will add compost and amendments to the beds, rake, trim, wee, and add much to the flower beds. Many hands make light work and we would love to have volunteers join us. If you have a wheel barrel, rake, hedge trimmer, bring them along!!


Pollinator Garden
May 20, 2016

We are adding a new "Pollinator" garden at Hiawatha this year to teach our students and families the importance of beneficial insects, birds, their homes and their food sources.  To kick this off, we have invited "Monarch Matters" to do a short presentation for the school and then we will assist them in making milkweed seed balls for their RAGBRAI team to distribute across Iowa this summer. We may even have a friendly competition to see which classroom can make the most seed balls in their allotted time.
We will start shortly after 9:00am, have a break when the students are at lunch, resume at 1:45 and finish up at 3:30. Come for the morning, the afternoon, or stay all day! No hard labor, just getting you hands a little bit dirty!
