10 Tips on How to Throw a Fall Garden Party

By sharonbeesley |


I adore my kid’s school garden. Remember the post I wrote where I gushed about how great it is? I made the garden look so effortless! Not today!

I’m going to focus on the garden work party. It’s hard to keep our garden thriving year round.  The last two work parties I attended at the school were such a success, I couldn’t help but share what I learned. Whether you have a school garden, interested in starting a school garden, or have a personal garden, my tips will help you! 

Tip #1: Call it a Party! It’s all in how you market the event. :) My kid’s garden party did have a party vibe. There was a lot of raking, digging, and pruning going on, but the kids were having a blast. I loved meeting the other adults. It was a perfect mix of socializing and working together.

Tip #2: Invite Everyone! I loved that I saw parents, students, community members and school staff helping prep the school’s garden for winter and spring. It was fun to meet and work with such a variety amount of people.

I can’t wait to share the rest of my tips with you! Times running out though if you want to plant bulbs in your garden. You might miss your chance for the roots to settle in before winter. I guess that’s Tip #3: Plant the Bulbs NOW!

The rest of my tips are the following:

#4 Buy Kids Sized Tools

We had a bucket filled with kids gloves, kid sized rakes, spades, and shovels. The kids loved finding tools their size. It made their jobs so much easier.

    Love the idea of the community garden for the kids. When I saw your pics of the kids with the small gloves, I immediately thought “where do I buy those?” Thanks for the link!
