Urban Harvest Affiliated Garden

The WCE Garden is an Urban Harvest Affiliated Garden

Wilchester is thrilled to have a vegetable garden, which promotes healthy living and outdoor learning. In May 2014, the PTA’s garden committee installed five raised beds (east of the basketball courts, in the center of our track). Stop by and see what’s growing this year!

The garden committee was awarded a grant from the SBEF in Spring 2014, a grant from Whole Foods Foundation in January 2015, and finally a grant from The American Heart Association and WorleyParsons in Fall of 2016!

Ready To Grow Gardens has partnered with Wilchester to provide professional garden educator classes with our teachers for our students! Learn more at http://readytogrowgardens.com

Wilchester also has an after school Garden Club that is open to Pre-K through 5th graders. In previous years they have learned about bees, herbs, composting, garden critters and many other topics outside in the garden. Learn more at http://www.wilchesterpta.org/garden-club/

As with any PTA committee, we would love to have YOU volunteer with us! You don’t need a green thumb to volunteer as we need help with volunteer coordination, grant/fundraising in addition to watering, weeding and many other fun gardening activities. If you want to learn more about the garden committee, please e-mail us at wilchestergarden@gmail.com or checkout our Signup Genius to get started volunteering right away!
