Community partners (Whole Foods Market along with Prosper & Be In Health, Inc., Elks WPB Lodge 1352, and the Wellington Garden Club) will be planting hundreds of new seedlings – many of which will be donated by The Tomato Store in Indiantown in working together to help the Wynnebrook Elementary Junior Garden Club students start a new Junior Garden at the Elks WPB Lodge. The event takes place Wednesday, September 11th, 2013, beginning at noon at the Elks Lodge #1352 – (Belvedere & Jog Rd.), in West Palm Beach.
The community partners hope Wynnebrook Elementary will become a model school for others in Palm Beach County to emulate in terms of sustainable gardening, better nutrition and healthy living. Whole Foods Market has agreed to provide the food and gardening service activity for September 11th. Their 20 member team will plant seedlings with the Wynnebrook Junior Garden Club members when they arrive (2:45 pm – 3:00 pm). Afterwards (approximately 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm) Whole Foods will prepare and serve a light supper menu for the students, parents, staff and guests.
While ensuring the complete success of the community project everyone remember that for a garden to successfully grow, students, partners and community must remember to work together to----
Plant three rows of Squash: Squash Gossip , Criticism, Indifference;
Plant three rows of Peas: Purity, Patience and Perseverance;
Plant four rows of Lettuce: Let us be Kind, Let us be Faithful, Let us be Obedient, Let us Love one another.
No garden is complete without Turnips: Turn up for Meetings, Turn up for Service and Turn up to lend a Helping Hand.
To conclude our planting, we must have Thyme: Thyme for God, Thyme for Study and Thyme for Prayer. We must water freely with Patience and Cultivate with Love.
Considering all of the above to go into the planting, then the harvesting , the Wynnebrook Elementary junior garden club has success in every way that will be beneficial to the entire school district and community in a garden that has been groomed for success for all physically and spiritually for complete ingredients that can feed us all daily throughout our lifetimes.
