Spring Cleaning

The Beverly Cleary School planned a garden clean-up as part of their Earth Month celebrations, and the Hollywood store joined in on the fun, thanks to MTL Rebecca Van Damm. Extra hands are always welcome in a school garden, especially during the spring! Find WKF Garden Grant recipients near your store using this map.

TMs, kids, teachers, and parents all worked together to spruce up the garden by weeding, pruning trees, sweeping, and planting. Thanks to gardening gloves provided by Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, nobody’s thumbs got too green despite the hard work!

Time for a Break

Activity books were a great break from the garden for kids who needed a quick recharge. Hollywood volunteers grilled up hotdogs and served other snacks from WKF’s supplier partners, which the kids loved!

Events like School Garden Parties build lasting relationships with local schools, which is great for your community and store!
