Last week at West Vernon Elementary, the boys and girls of Dr. Hugo’s class participated in a competition to see who could weed more in a given time period. This week the two teams demanded a rematch, and both teams came to the garden determined to be the winners – and off they went!
Mulch was also delivered to the school garden, and the students went straight to work putting it in the garden. We reviewed how mulch (wood chips) would hinder the growth of weeds and enable the garden to flourish!
Our snack consisted of a crunchy cucumber paired with red bell pepper – both were sprinkled with lemon, salt, and pepper, making it a light, refreshing snack after all the weeding and putting down the mulch!
