Garden Boxes are built and starting to grow!

Thank you to Farmer Mike for showing us how to build our 8’x4′ garden boxes at the front of the school. We had many helpers – some had never used an impact driver or fastened wood together before – and we needed every one of them! There was lots of bracing, measuring, drilling, shovelling and hauling a lot of dirt to make the project come together.

Div. 2 & Div. 7 have planted radish and lettuce and they started to sprout over the break! It will be exciting to see what we can harvest over the next couple of months. Farmer Mike will be here every Friday morning to teach us about the different planting seasons, soil nutrition, composting and more!
