Kent’s class came down to do some scientific drawings of plants in the garden. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, and students were able to spread out and get into some amazing artistic renditions of plants.

Jenessa’s class got to hang out in the garden for over an hour, exploring, tasting, and basically getting in touch with an incredible space that is growing fast! This garden really is an incredible resource for kids to explore plants and find a relaxing space to enjoy. Spending this much time in the garden was a really enjoyable experience and we hope to have them back soon!
The middle school really came through during the Orca plant sale. They helped write tags for the plants, water the plants, organize them, etc. We thank them for all their hard work in this amazing group effort.
Matt’s class was excited to visit the Orca garden plot at The Hillman City P-Patch and turn that soil over. This is an amazing community resource where Orca can continue to move towards growing more food for local food banks. Matt’s class really got the ball rolling with some old fashioned hard work!
With the inevitable promise of future french fries, baked potatoes, and maybe even potato chips, Phi Ho’s class got to digging up a garden bed and planting yellow fingerlings (Anthony’s favorite) & purple potatoes (everyone’s favorite). Update- they have grown tremendously over the last few weeks!
