Request for Volunteers for Harvest Festival on 9/28

Mrs. Kuhn and Ms. Tichner are excited to bring our 3rd Annual MLS Farm and Harvest Celebration Day to MLS!

Our learning fun will take place on Friday, September 28th, 8:15-10:30 in the MLS Bus Loop & Learning Garden

We aim to bring you a variety of folks who will help students engage in a fun celebration of growing, sustainability, nutrition, learning about the importance of local farms, and being stewards of nature!

Some of our goals include each child planting a seed in our school garden, learning about local farming, exploring ways to balance nutrition with seasonal harvests, learning about compost, how seeds germinate, the importance of pollinators with foods, and kicking off our school year by getting excited about learning outdoors!

We are also looking for connecting with additional folks in our MLS Community who might be interested in joining us to contribute to the learning of our students during this wonderful event. Please reach out to lakuhn@k12albemarle.org if you are a local farm, farmer, or if your practice is connected to our goals. We would LOVE to have you join us!

Lastly, we are still in need of a few volunteers. Please reach out to volunteer@mlspto.org if you can help as a Parent Volunteer! Most needs will be to help with the planting station, balance student numbers at activity areas, and to help quickly break down tables in the area upon completion of our event.
