This past Saturday, students, staff and family members all showed up despite the rain to help raise the garden shed at Shelton Intermediate School. The shed kit was provided through a grant from the Valley Community Foundation, and it was put together through volunteer efforts.
The SIS Garden is marking its first year next month, www.siscommunitygarden.com. There are lots of things planned for the upcoming months. During Saturday’s building venture, volunteers tilled out areas for corn, strawberries and sunflowers. There are plantings and seedlings taking root in a nearby hoop house.
