Our gardens need your help!

The Dexter Schools Garden Boosters is a group of parents, teachers, community members, and non-profit partners who have come together to support the school gardens district-wide.  Each garden currently has a point-person who serves on the Garden Boosters and can help new parents and community members looking to get involved in their school’s garden.  If you’d like to get involved, email gardenboosters@gmail.com or join us for the following fall events:

October, Fall Harvest Soup Supper- 10/20. Join us to help prepare for our Fall Soup Supper Fundraiser.  Time to be determined.

November, Make and Take Delicious Holiday Dinner Rolls- 11/17. Join us for a cooking demonstration and get a head start on your Thanksgiving holiday meal. All participants will take home an assortment of our delicious Creekside dinner rolls.  Time to be determined.
