Throughout the summer months and into the school year, Grace's Table Farm Produce Sharing has involved Trewyn 4H students as well as adult farmers from Grace's Table Ministries. The bountiful garden provided collard and turnip greens and kale, tomatoes of all kinds, cabbage, and more to over 60 families weekly. Our season of garden produce is nearing the end. However, the healthy impact and community spirit of the Grace's Table Farm Produce Sharing has all participants already planning for our next planting and harvest seasons! Special thanks to our weekly 4H volunteers, to the Schell Family, and to the members of Mt. Sinai Church for sharing their facility for the effort.
Over 40 1st - 6th grade students joined the Trewyn 4H Nature Detectives group this year. Trewyn Nature Detectives meet once a week to explore science and the environment, studying plants, insects, animals and forces of nature such as wind, rain and temperature. With a focus on energy and environmental stewardship Nature Detectives work to improve the environment on Trewyn property. This year they plan to expand the school’s pollinator garden. In addition, students visit local natural venues including Wildlife Prairie Park and Forest Park Nature Center. Jason Haupt, University of Illinois Extension educator leads the 4H Nature Detectives program.
Trewyn Day Treatment students learned first-hand recently that plants, like people, can thrive when given some special care and attention. The students revived donated plants from Lowe's and Jeffrey Alan. They learned to make their own fertilizer and observed how plants in crisis can be transformed to healthy plants when they were given sufficient nutrients that they could find in their own kitchen. After a short stay in the plant hospital, the students beautified the Trewyn School parking islands with their adopted patients.
Mrs. Heidi DeFrance, Mrs. Pam Brasher, Ms. Lindsay Perry, and Ms. Katie Riner created a Donors Choose project to generate approximately $500 in donated school supplies for the Trewyn K-6 School 5th and 6th grades. “Donors Choose” makes it easy for everyone to help classrooms in need. Their ultimate goal: to move our country closer to a nation where students, no matter their resources, have the tools and experiences they need to receive a great education. Currently over 30 Peoria Public School teachers are seeking donations for projects on the Donors Choose website. Take a look: http://tinyurl.com/z3vzlgx
