Gatewood Summer Garden & Playfield Watering Opportunities!
Please help us keep the Gatewood Garden & Playfield watered and fresh this Summer for our student’s return to learning in the Fall! We have weekly watering slots available and we NEED YOUR HELP! You can choose to water the whole week or coordinate with friends to split a week of watering!
Duties include: Watering the Learning Garden daily when it’s hot out, or every couple days in cooler weather. The tree bags around the playfield will need to be filled just once a week (hose & spigot located behind the portable near the field).
