We need Dirt for the Garden. I found some @ Lowes. We will take anything we can get:) Thanks!
Garden soil – as much as we can get – Each bed needs 16 cu feet so, 8 bagsx7.97=$64.00
We are building 20 beds = 1280.00
We can use a gift card, cash or they can go buy it and drop it off at the garden location at school. 

Mrs. Clay will contact Chef Renfro and tell her that we will adopt one of the beds.  We will follow-up next week with the Environmental Club to see if they want to help plant or have some interaction with the teens from Centennial who will be developing the community garden.

We will also ask anyone who has extra garden soil to deliver to Harper, but we will do that after proper permission are granted.  There are too many activities going on to have a "dirt drive."  We will focus on private donations to help Centennial as much as we can.
