Rain or Shine, We Can Still Grow

Last week at Wilton Place it was a very rain friday. But We where about to come together and still discuss plans for the school garden. I dubbed the  5th grade class the official garden stewards for the school.  Giving them a little more responsibility to help ensure that our school garden is well taken care of.

The students we discussed plants we would like to see growing in the school garden and ways we can keep our soil healthy by making sure the ground is not covered with litter.
