Square Foot Gardening

At Gardner, we appreciate the use of math in the garden. We learned to read a seed packet and talked about converting inches to feet.


Everyone received one square foot of space in the garden, and decided how to plant their 2 packs of seeds.

We finished our math, and went to planting. It won’t be long before most of these seeds pop up!


The students left Valentines grams on the shed-I almost didn’t see them! Being their Garden Ranger is extremely rewarding-and the cards make it even more special!
