Grass Games

Today we bid farewell to several local high school students who’ve been working with us this summer. As a thank-you and goodbye, the nursery served up a fried chicken lunch and pulled out the games. We had a tournament with four teams and four events.

We tossed rings, threw bean bags, pitched ladder balls, and wielded ping pong paddles. Everyone had a good time cheering on colleagues and jumping into the events. We thought you would enjoy seeing our fun lunch and friendly competition!

Maggie and Emily helped organize the games. They're ready to go!
