On Friday we had our first planting day in the garden! Each class planted fall vegetable seeds in their own raised bed – peas, carrots, lettuce, turnips, lots of leafy greens and root veggies. We planted our herb garden so we can explore all the wonderful smells of lavender, mint, rosemary, sage, thyme and more. In our pollinator garden beds, we mounted bird houses, bug hotels and butterfly houses so come spring, we can see all the beautiful creatures that will come to our garden. Now we wait and watch things grow!
Over Spring Break, we received the enormous gift of having Dave Reese and his team at TurnerBatson Architects redo our entire Preschool entrance and lobby. After giving free consultation to the church, they offered MBPC a serve day, during which they gave the whole facility a breath of fresh air. We are beyond grateful for the kindness they have shown to us, and for our gorgeous new look! THANK YOU!
On Wednesday morning, a group of Mountain Brook High School Seniors and staff spent 2 hours of community service here at MBPC, completely reviving our garden in preparation for some exciting new plans! The community garden has been a part of MBPC for many years, and has experienced several transitions. We are excited to announce that we are in the process of renewing the garden to serve the preschool, church and community as an educational space, with a quiet Habitat Garden, a perennial pollinator garden, and an outdoor classroom with a teaching garden. The MBHS group gave us the kick-start we needed as we begin this energizing project!
