More Outdoor Ed counselors needed

School garden coordinator wanted
 
One of the great resources on the College Park campus is our PTSA-funded organic garden, located near the southeast corner of campus. We are looking for one or more parents to be our garden coordinator this year. The coordinator oversees planting and general care of the garden during the school year and also coordinates with the staff for student participation. Produce from the garden (it's delicious!) is used on campus.
 
If you have a green thumb, this might be the job for you!  We currently have two parent alums who maintain the garden, but we would really like to transition this to current parents.  All the clearing-out and weeding has already been done for this year, so the garden is ready to go.
 
This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for two or more parents to share.  If you are interested or would like more information, please email Matt Lovett or Lesley Stiles.

In "Appointment with Death," Mrs. Boynton is the tyrannical stepmother who rules her adult children with an iron hand. When she turns up dead, all the characters in and around her family fall under suspicion. Set in Jerusalem and Jordan in 1945, this mystery introduces an ensemble of quirky, international characters and delves into mental illness, colonialism and the dysfunctional family.
