Hello Cowlishaw Families,

On behalf of Mrs. Eaton, we are looking for 1-2 families per week to water and weed our Cowlishaw garden. We welcome any student and their entire family to help! Families can come anytime from 7-3 Monday through Thursday (that is generally when the building is open).

Mr. Jorge, our custodian, typically keeps the key to the hose hookup and sets out the materials ahead of time, so long as we know when they're coming. Mrs Eaton will provide you with the contact numbers for Mr Jorge.
If you aren't sure what is a weed and what is a vegetable, Mrs Eaton is happy to help. When you sign for a gardening shift using the link below, you may also sign up for one of the training sessions or contact Mrs. Eaton directly. Her cell phone number is 630-201-5728 and her email address is Please note, that the spots have been created for Mondays. That will be day 1 of the week that you are volunteering for. Ideally you should try to come 2-3 days during your week. You are also welcome to harvest and take home any produce that is ready!

Please use the following link to sign up for this fun family activity!

Thank you!
