Exploring all the growth in Lexington’s garden!

This was my first week as the garden ranger of Lexington Primary School. It was exciting for both me and the kids to come to a garden flourishing with fruits and vegetables! Check out our growing pumpkin, watermelon, and tomatoes.

We spent some time introducing ourselves by saying our names and a garden plant or critter that starts with the same letter (think Ms. Claire Carrot 🙂 ) We then explored the garden by drawing things in the garden that we hear, smell, touch, see, and taste!

We ended our class by tasting garden fresh tomatoes with carrots and homemade hummus. Check back next week to see the kindergarteners make a worm compost and taste the watermelon.
