Last day of garden class

January 26th, 2017

It was another great 6 weeks with these group of students. Many were so sad that we wouldn’t be having garden class anymore, but told them they were always welcome to come visit the garden.

Because the kids hadn’t been to the garden in a month and a half (winter break and then the rain), I decided we would spend our whole class time either planting or weeding, and really getting our hands in the soil and giving the garden some love. Both 5th and 6th graders got to fix one bed. First, they got to weed the bed. Afterwards, they all got to spread compost all over the bed, they seemed to really enjoy that one! Once the compost was done, they all partnered up and got to plant seedlings or seeds. The younger ones had so much fun weeding the baby weeds that have come up because of the rain.
