Spring is here and Peralta in Bloom is just around the corner! Don't forget to invite your friends to the festival on Saturday, May 14 from noon to 4 p.m. It's guaranteed that they'll have a blast. This year's expanded celebration includes many new wonderful games and events, as well as old favorites like the bouncy house, climbing walls, pulled pork barbecue and the unforgettable Peralta Cake Walk.


This year's theme is Sustainable Fun, and you'll see activities centered on reuse, recycling, and our love of gardens scattered throughout events. Our goal again is zero waste, and the Peralta trash monsters will make a repeat appearance to gobble compostables.

A few opportunities to help:

We'll be painting signs at Peralta this Saturday, May 7th during garden work day (9:00am-1:00pm). Sign painting will take place from 9:30am-10:30am. Help beautify the school grounds for Peralta in Bloom!

We need your shade structures for Spring Fest: market umbrellas & stands, canopies, etc. They can be dropped off at school in the mornings to me or arrangements can be made for them to be picked-up. Either way please contact Cinthia Andrus (cc_andrus AT yahoo DOT com).

We have some large Peralta in Bloom posters that can be put up in preschools, churches, community centers, etc. Pick them up from the PPTG Mailbox in the office.

Volunteer for just 1 hour at Peralta in Bloom, you can sign-up at school this Wednesday night at the PPTG Meeting or at Friday morning's "Brewing Community."
