In celebration of National Volunteer week, the One91 Community Education Youth Service program hosted a Spring Clean-Up Day on Saturday, April 16.
During this clean-up, students in the Youth Service Program and the Burnsville High School Giving Garden club worked together to clean up the southwest side of the main campus, preparing the Giving Garden for the up coming planting season.
Students worked on the preschool garden at Diamondhead Education Center, planting peas and radishes, and also helped Gideon Pond teachers set up their giving garden for use with students this spring.
Additionally, the BHS Giving Garden club is looking for volunteers to help maintain and harvest the garden. In the process, you will learn all about gardening. All the produce will be donated to 360 Communities’ food shelf. Beginning April 4 and running through the end of the school year, the Giving Garden club will be meeting on Mondays after school at the Giving Garden from 2:30-4 p.m. (all time spent in the Giving Garden club counts toward volunteer hours).
Sign up online or in G160. You can also follow the Garden on Twitter @GardenBHS.
