Steller Garden in the Summer!

Are you looking for other day camp options for your child(ren) this summer? The Anchorage-based nonprofit Alaska Seeds of Change is looking to hold an interactive summer gardening program to teach youth about how to start, grow, and maintain fresh and local Alaskan produce. A special focus this year will be developing leadership skills.

Workshops will be every Tuesday and Thursday 12:00 to 1:30 starting May 25.

Everyone is invited to join. For anyone interested, they can reach us via email at volunteer@akseedsofchange.com or sign up online at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4fa9a62fa0fdc16-steller

We also accept walk ins, but signing up helps us prepare. 

The garden is next to the parking lot and the fields on the southeast corner of the lot. 

See you there,

The Citywide Cleanup “Super Sweeper” Program  is a great way to teach kids the importance of keeping our community clean, and it’s also a lot of fun.

  • Win door prizes – a $50.00 gift certificate to Fred Meyer, and Steller Spirit Wear.
  • Light refreshments will be served (while supplies last). 
  • Register here. It helps us plan how many people to expect if you register, but please feel free to drop by even if you haven’t registered. 

We will be collecting the following to support Covenant House:

  • Gently used books, CDs etc to sell to Title Wave for credit.
  • NEW travel sized toiletries like shampoo and conditioner, toothbrushes and toothpaste, mouthwash, chapstick and deodorant.

  • Wear a mask and practice social distancing to keep everyone safe. 
  • Wear gloves (we will have a limited amount)  and an orange safety vest or bright coloured clothing.
  • Children must be under adult supervision at all times, everyone should use a buddy system.
  • Make good decisions to keep yourself safe. Be aware of the following risks:
    • The area may have needles, and other biohazards* (only adults should consider picking these up).
    • Sharp objects like glass and wire.
    • Steller is surrounded by busy streets, cross safely. 
    • Keep in mind other risks associated with the midtown location.
  • Orange trash bags may not be used for household trash, yard clippings or hazardous waste such as a car battery, or household cleaners.
  • Dress appropriately. Sunscreen, rain gear, waterproof shoes and hats are recommended. Please be aware of private property boundaries and ask permission to clean in these areas.
  • Return orange bags back to Steller for pick up after no later than 1:30 pm.

*Adults may consider bringing a medical sharps container designed for needle collection, available at some pharmacies, or thick plastic jugs for detergent, kitty litter or shampoo (water bottles are too thin and can be punctured.) 

If you have questions or want to volunteer to help organize please contact Kirsten at chairstellerparentgroup@gmail.com
