Today, Saturday July 9, from 10-12, we will be gathering to
Save the Garden, and Save the Ecology Program.
We will also be celebrating the garden and ecology program, our community, children and families, our plants and animals and Life in General.
I still don’t understand why the LSC decided to defund the ecology program by 30%. I really don’t know. But, I do know what is involved in doing the ecology program and garden, and all the moving parts and relationships that keep it going. So, we are working on that.
In the meantime we have been buoyed by the outpouring of support, which we will share with the LSC (and Principal). They will also be posted on our website watersecology.org. There will be a meeting of the new LSC in two weeks and we hope very much to resolve the crisis, and move into the new school year with a full heart.
For tomorrow, we will start with doing some garden stewardship, weeding and wood chipping. While this is going on some of us will be preparing food, getting the grills going, making our own local gooseberry lemonade, and generally setting up to finish up the event with some music, songs and greetings.
