Join Us! Rain Tank Installation at the Cali School Garden
Volunteers are needed to help install a brand new 2,650 gallon rain tank in the Cali Keyhole Garden! We'll be capturing rainwater off a classroom roof and using it to water the school garden this Winter. Help is needed installing the tank and the drip irrigation system. Don't worry, no technical skills needed. Training can be provided by our partners Daily Acts, the Town of Windsor, the Rotary Club, and Engineers Without Borders. A delicious, homemade lunch will be provided, with a gluten-free option. This will be a great chance to get to know new people in the community, as well as learn how to utilize the gift of free water falling from the sky. Please sign up by clicking here so the organizers know how much lunch to make. A sign-up sheet is also available in room 43. Participation counts toward annual volunteer hours!

School Garden Flower Bulb Fundraiser!
DUE THIS FRIDAY Oct 21st (Fall Bulbs) & Nov 2 (Holiday Amaryllis)
It’s bulb planting time! You can support the Cali Garden and Nutrition Program by purchasing your daffodils, tulips (and more) from Growing Green Fundraising using the attached order form or online with this link CaliGarden.shopggf.com. You can also order Holiday Amaryllis growing kits! 50% will be donated back to Cali! Funds raised will help make the students’ experience in nutrition and gardening classes even better with an outdoor food washing station and shaded seating in the Keyhole Garden. We’d also love to plant fruit trees! Children get excited to try new fruits and veggies when they have planted and harvested the food themselves. The school garden feeds their curiosity about the environment as well as their bellies! Along the way, they gain nutrition knowledge and practice healthy eating habits to share at home!
You can order two ways:
OPTION 1 Online using this link CaliGarden.shopggf.com. Bulbs will be mailed to a residence - family and friends can order directly and support our school garden program!
OPTION 2 Return the attached order form(s) with money to school. Checks payable to Cali Calmécac Language Academy. Orders must be received by: Friday, October 21 for Fall Bulbs, Wednesday, Nov. 2 for Holiday Amaryllis/Paper Whites Bulbs will be sent home from school approximately 2 weeks later.
It is very exciting that we get our own Oliver's Market in Windsor!
Don't forget you can support Cali using an Oliver's Community Card. Fill out this form and hand it to the cashier when you go to Oliver's. 3% will go back to Cali!
