One of the last hot days of the summer (we hope) marked the perfect time to look forward to cooler weather and fall veggies! 

Students of Peabody Elementary planted the seeds of our Fall Garden. 

Emily Holmes, a first grade mom and avid gardener, has led the effort to bring gardening to the school’s backyard.  First grade parent and landscape expert, Kalki Winter also helped coordinate the effort.  

On this warm Friday morning, students got their hands good and dirty.  

Amazing Peabody teachers Jenifer Eoff and Emily McMillen were also on hand.  So many of our fine teachers moved schedules to make sure kids could participate. So worthwhile.
