What is Yard Day?

Yard Day happens twice a year at Runnymede P.S. (Spring/Fall).

It is a family-friendly, community clean-up event where we maintain and tidy the Hillside Nature Garden at the school to get it ready for lots of wonderful outdoor learning. Everyone is welcome, including Runnymede students, parents, grandparents and siblings!

At Fall Yard Day our primary tasks are litter patrol, weeding and removal of invasive species. The event runs from 9:00am – noon, on Saturday, September 22nd. You can stop by for an hour, or help out for the whole morning!

What can kids do at Yard Day?

There are lots of fun activities for kids.  At Fall Yard Day, kids enjoy helping out with litter patrol, and trimming plants.  There will also be a Fall nature craft, apple peeling, and a nature scavenger hunt.

What can I bring to Yard Day?

  • Garden snips
  • Garden gloves
  • Brooms
  • Reusable water bottle/coffee cup
  • Nut-free baking to share on our snack/coffee table
