Planting Week at Murphy (M-Th 1-3pm)

May 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Every year, Murphy students plant flowers, vegetables, and herbs in the school gardens as a way to connect with nature, learn about plants, beautify the grounds, and bond with buddies.  This year we cannot all be together with buddies but we can still enjoy the experience of contributing vegetation to our school gardens.

Sign up for a time slot and bring a plant (flower, vegetable, herb) and your gardening tool(s).  Please wear a mask and maintain social distance during your visit.  (There will be some plants, disposable gloves, and disinfected tools if you are unable to bring your own.)

Farmer’s Market Garden Center (4110 N Elston Ave) has also offered a 20% discount to buy your plants there.  Just tell them you are a Murphy family!
