Wilton Place Clean Up

After 3 weeks of no school, it feels great to get the garden back into good shape and ready for more plants so soak up all of this rain.


A big big thank you to my wonderful students helpers who used their recess time to help me get a whole love of grasses and plants picked up.

It is wonderful to have their support.
