Happy Helpers | Sullivan Prek

What happy helpers I had at Sullivan’s garden today! While practicing sharing and with smiling faces (some weren’t so happy about having partners ;)), the preschoolers helped us water the plants. They did such a great job! We have been learning how to behave in the garden each week and each week these kids have been improving so well! I am very proud if them.

I am also proud of Ms. Dee, who helps me every couple weeks with garden maintenance. Today we worked together to pull out some very stubborn chocolate mint. It’ll probably come back, even after all our efforts but in the meantime, I planted some cool weather crops there to be ready after the winter break.

Lastly, I harvested a carrot for the kids to taste! It was so good….
