Want to eat like a tennis player at Crozet Elementary?
Grow Veggies for QuickStart!
The kids at Crozet Elementary want to be great tennis players, so they've spruced up their raised beds as part of Grow Veggies for QuickStart! The project to reclaim the beds was led by Monica Brooks, Crozet ES parent, PTO volunteer and big QuickStart Tennis fan!
A Grow Veggies! Clean Up Day was held on Friday, September 23, 2011 from 9:00 AM until noon in conjunction with the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants (VSCPA) annual day of service. Vicki Jones, Crozet ES parent and PTO Board member, is also President of the Thomas Jefferson Chapter of VSCPA.
As these two photos show, there was a lot of work to be done to get these tennis gardens back in shape.
UPDATE: Crozet ES parents Monica Brooks and Ronda Ingersoll organized the clean up to refurbish the three existing raised beds. Rainy weather made things somewhat challenging, but the results speak for themselves. Parents and students jumped in and made a HUGE difference. Seeds and seedlings were donated by Monticello's Center for Historic Plants, while Ivy Corner Nursery provided supplies at a deep discount. What a great project!
