On Friday we had our first planting day in the garden! Each class planted fall vegetable seeds in their own raised bed – peas, carrots, lettuce, turnips, lots of leafy greens and root veggies. We planted our herb garden so we can explore all the wonderful smells of lavender, mint, rosemary, sage, thyme and more. In our pollinator garden beds, we mounted bird houses, bug hotels and butterfly houses so come spring, we can see all the beautiful creatures that will come to our garden. Now we wait and watch things grow!
The 4 year old classes have planted a garden this year, right outside the window of Mrs. Tina’s class. Students brought in garden soil, plants and seeds, and record notes and drawings in their garden journals. There is something new to see every day, as we learn about our world and where our food comes from!
