Soil. Where would we be without it?

Students at West Vernon Elementary learned the ingredients of soil and how proper proportions are able to form a hospitable environment for plant growth. In the garden they were able to get hands on experience in aerating and amending soil beds before planting seeds or transplants. It is a large garden but fortunately the students are always willing to help; whether it’s removing weeds or adding flowers, they know the garden will show its appreciation with fresh fruits and vegetables.
