Lil Stewards of Wilton Place

The other week we planted drought resistant plants in a front end of the school garden to add a bit more life in area that was not doing to well in the past.I’ve been blown away by┬áthe enthusiasm students at Wilton Place Elementary school. It has been incredibly encouraging.

Students are even bringing in their own trowels and tills. It is so much fun to work with a group of students who are no afraid to get dirty.

 

We also found so pretty interesting things living and left behind in our garden.
