Garden Rules

Welcome to the GLES Olallie Garden! Our school’s Learning Garden is created and maintained by parent volunteers, GLES PTA, and the larger Green Lake community.

Our garden rules:

  1. Respect all living things. This includes plants, worms, and other soil creatures, birds, yourself, and all the people around you, too!
  2. Respect the garden structure. Keep soil in the garden beds. Leave stones, wood, log borders, and markers in place. Please do not dig holes, block pathways, or climb on the sculptures.
  3. Be invited. Before you eat something from a plant, wait for an adult to invite you to pick and eat. Always look closely at a plant before eating it.
  4. Follow the “cool tool rule” (aka the belly button rule). Keep all garden tools below your belly button, to keep yourself and your friends safe! This includes all sticks, logs, rocks and wood chips, too. Have a grown-up by your side if you are using an adult tool. Put tools away when you are done.
  5. Use your garden feet and garden voice.  Move safely in the garden and stay on garden paths, so you can see, hear, and enjoy more of its beauty! Listen for instructions from your teacher, caregiver, or garden instructor.

We are glad you are here!

Here’s what the garden looked like today…

What a great day to garden…lots of weeding, composter flipped, planted tomatoes, and watered. See you at the next Garden Day, Saturday, June 2 from 10am-2pm.

It’s not too early to think about SUMMER! The garden will be in its prime and needs volunteers to water from late Spring and throughout the summer. Not sure what to do? We will have summer water training in May and June, or by request, just ask a parent volunteer. It’s a great way to stay in touch with friends over the summer. Water sign-ups are here: http://signup.com/go/dHcDPui. There are already some signed up, will you be next!?
