Join the Steering Committee to find out what is happening in our garden classrooms around the grounds. Take a look at some of the ways you can help us continue to provide this program and follow the link at the bottom of the page to access our sign up form.

Classroom Garden Leader – lead a class each week in a garden activity.  Each Garden Leader is paired with a teacher at Becker.  The Garden Leader communicates with the teacher and prepares and leads a garden activity each week for the class.

Garden Leader Assistant – assist a Garden Leader.  Ideally a class has 2 or 3 activities occurring simultaneously to allow a smaller number of students to work in the class garden.  A Garden Leader Assistant provides additional support and supervision in the garden.

Site Maintenance and Repairs – a person handy with tools, materials and some heavy lifting and/or climbing abilities are needed. If you have these abilities, consider calling and offering to help with the latest need.

Garden Maintenance – help with ongoing tasks in the garden:  weeding, collecting compost material from local vendors, watering, cleaning the pond, or other projects that need completion.  Times are flexible, or join us for community garden maintenance during Green Classroom Workdays.

Steering Committee – Join the steering committee and help chart the future of the garden classroom. The committee works in small groups such as building maintenance, grounds maintenance, communication, event planning (Garden Gala and Back to school night). We also schedule garden classes, plan and lead garden events and workdays and other needed tasks. Meetings are held the second Friday of each month from 8-9:15am in the building on the grounds of the garden.
