5th graders spend time in the garden

10 Apr

Recently, about 30 of our 5th graders spent some time working in the garden helping get it ready for the change in seasons.  No, the weather has not really changed that dramatically from winter to spring, but it was coming up on warm season vegetable time so we needed to add compost to the vegetable beds and get them ready for planting.  And the 5th graders were just the helpers the garden needed.

There was lots of weeding to be done and the once they knew what to look for, the students were some of the best weeders I have ever seen.

We gave the veggie beds a fresh helping of compost so our warm season vegetables would have plenty of organic matter for nutrition.

And everything around the garden got a great dose of water.  All of this Garden TLC has gotten our garden off to a strong start for the spring and good prep for the hot weather in the summer.  Thanks to all of those students who participated and we hope to have you out in the garden as often as we can!
