Yay Ms Heneise! And thank you fellow mom Prudence Burgardt!
Today Ms Heneise’ fourth grade class spent a fun morning planting in the garden. The kids planted a perennial artichoke, a passionfruit vine to climb up the arbor, and strawberries and basil in their raised bed. We are hoping to get some fall veggie starts for them to plant next Friday morning. With Prudence’s help the kinder and second grade classes will be planting their beds soon, followed by each of the other grades.
We’re also excited to be working on a combination dye and fiber garden for our art teacher, Ms Serrano . Thus far we have a California native basket rush, as well as California Sagebrush, and Russian Sage; both dye plants. Plus, we’ve got hard to find Indigo and Madder seeds on order.
