Today we held our annual Fall Garden Market on Main Street, Julian. Chances are we’ll be there tomorrow, because we have a lot of big ideas we want to fund. Here are a few snapshots from the day:
Tying up the native strawberry plants with burlap and raffia. Garden Ambassadors propagated the plants.
Photo cards from Kids with Cameras, apple print cards by the third graders and the seeds we saved from our snapdragons during a University of Wednesday class.
The kids helped set up and then made corn husk dolls. (Avery wore the Pooh costume all day!)
Rosemary wreaths were popular! I want to do this activity again with students—maybe a Mothers’ Day gift?
The sale always has the backbone of gourmet baked goods, thanks to Rita!
We sold daffodil bulbs in baskets, with directions for planting.
Marisa and Kathy worked all day! Thank you friends!
Raised today: $473!
This is wonderful. I wish we had the time and capacity to do all of this! This is exactly how I envision kids to learn in the garden through the whole chain from growing to vending.
Beautiful. Craftsmanship and great care. I love it.
Thanks Drew. There is so much that could be done with this concept: kids making things “grown in” or “inspired by” the garden. Reminds me to get the Riverbend Commons potpourri recipe…
Was out all day, sorry I missed your message. Happy all went well 🙂

Talk up the leftovers in the staff room! 🙂
oh the rosemary wreaths looks terrific! What a great fundraiser, so much better than all those creepy cookies & candies usually on offer 😉
Thanks! It feels good to sell “local” things and it’s also a great opportunity to spread the word about school gardens. I’m sold on the rosemary wreaths—going to definitely do those again with kids!
It’s a wonderful event! Looks quite inviting!
Thanks for stopping by today and supporting us! We pulled in another $340 for the project!
Back in the day…A Welcome Biker sign got my wallet out at events like this….dad
I’ll have to take that idea to the Garden Club General Meeting…..whatever it takes!
