If you haven’t been out to the garden classroom this year, please do so this week.  Katherine has transformed the space into a creative and useful place for learning and growing.

This past week, students were busy planting lots of fall and overwintering kale, salad greens, root veggies, cabbage, broccoli, and collards. Soon they will finish fall preparations by sowing leguminous cover crops to feed the soil over the winter as well as garlic to enjoy next summer.
For this coming week, Oakleaves and Dragonflies will learn about bulbs and plant out daffodils and tulips.
Blue Herons and River Otters will learn about seed packets as informational texts and choose a seed type from our garden they would like to save in a homemade seed packet.
Foxes will be making a tasty kale salad to kick off our every other week classes.
