Garden Club Farm Stand

The FWES Garden Club will host a farm stand on Wednesday, June 5. We will be selling small bunches of produce and giving garden tours. Our garden club has been caring for the garden since the fall, and FWES students in grades K-5 have been busy planting for weeks. With all of the rain and warm weather lately, things are really growing! We hope you can join us from 3:30-4:45 at the garden.


​​Big Strides needs your help! 

Volunteering is a great chance to interact with the children and is also younger sibling friendly.
