A Greenhouse’s Grand Opening

Garden City helped kick off St. Peter’s growing season with a School Garden Party for a 5th grade class, students’ families, teachers, and the school’s principal.

The celebration began with a ribbon cutting ceremony at the school’s new greenhouse, which was funded by a WKF Garden Grant. This wonderful day in the garden was organized by Jewel Healy, Marketing Team Leader and School Garden Party Master Planner.

Getting the Party Started

After a quick ceremony, the fun got started with healthy grab-and-go snacks for everyone, created by the catering department. Then, all the kids received gardening kits from Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day before heading out to plant in the school’s raised beds.

Everyone went home with goodie bags from Garden City filled with treats from the store and WKF’s supplier partners!
