Garden Continued from page 45 "We learned that if we don't pull up weeds the plants will die," said Layton, whose mother Marlyn and three-year-old sister Rachel also came out to help with the garden. Students are in the process of creating another special section for the area, which will include bird feeders and birdhouses, said Riggin. The summer care of the garden is taken care of by volunteers, she said, which are still needed "The main thing now is keeping things weeded and watered," said Riggin. "We need more hands." In the meantime, the staff and students can look forward to the next school year and the harvest- ing of pumpkins in the fall. A summer schedule is currently in effect for the Shields garden volunteers, and anyone interested in helping with its care is asked to call the school at 645-7748 for in- formation, or consult3he Cape Gazette's Community Calendar for dates and times.
