Are you dreaming of warmer weather, springtime, and sunshine? So are we! Planning a garden is really great way to pass the time when it's cold out. Who doesn't love to look at photos from a garden catalog and dream of how great everything will smell and taste when it's in your very own yard? This year, Nuts + Bolts is hosting an online fundraiser with Flower Power Fundraising. All you have to do is dream about your garden and then order some things from the online catalog.Accepting orders until May 1, 2021 http://NUTSANDBOLTS.fpfundraising.com It's as easy as that! All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit MNCS. You can help us grow by planting some things that grow --- pretty great, right? Thank you for supporting the students and staff at Minnesota New Country School! Here's to dirt under our fingernails and grass stains on our knees - Nuts + Bolts (aka MNCS PTA)
