The last few weeks at Weemes Elementary School have been integrated with lessons about Friends and Foes, Types of Soil, and Seasonal gardening in Southern California. Grade 2 and Grade 5 are new to the garden this semester and have been learning how to take care of the garden at their school. As the winter vegetables, such as broccoli, lettuce, and kale are ready to harvest, students have continued planting the last of the remaining winter vegetables. Recently the snow peas and snap peas have grown to be harvested, while cabbages and beans were planted where old broccoli plants were pulled. Beautiful radishes were harvested a couple weeks ago, and each week students have been making delicious edible salads! Soon Weemes students will begin their STEM-Garden lessons, while the new seedlings grow and mature over the next few weeks.
