Wrong--best job ever!
|It's a jungle out there!|
The Garden Champ does more than "weed 'em and reap!"
The Garden Champion is the GO TO person, helping to make sure the garden is in order through planting and care, but the Garden Champ is also the advocate for the use of the garden by the staff and students. This might involve simple or progressive lesson plans, bringing in experts from the field, setting up an after school garden/nature club, or just getting people to smile as they walk by.
|Gardeners need all the smiles they can get--nutsedge is sad business.|

Digging out the raised beds to prepare for replanting is the easy part (relatively). And I'm getting pretty good at getting people to smile as they walk by. I have loads of lesson plans from the 5 minute to the 5 month. Now, if we can just get some students! (school starts NEXT week)
