Over the summer, students and parents shoveled topsoil and compost and lined the beds with wood and rocks. This week the children started planting cold-season greens.The harvest will be donated to the local food pantry and enrich cooking projects at school. Elementary students are learning to be responsible for watering and weeding and monitoring the progress of their crops. Maybe they’ll even learn to like spinach. Students are planning to build a low tunnel to cover the crops and extend the growing season into December.
