It’s springtime and plants of all kinds are starting to grow in school gardens and outdoor learning spaces. It’s the perfect time to schedule a first volunteer day for weeding! Not only can weeding be a safely masked outdoor activity the school community can join in, but getting a jump on weeds now will save work later on, and will save water and sunlight for the plants you value more. For young volunteers who don’t know which plant is a weed, download this handy “Most Wanted Weeds” guide.
