Work Party!!!! So many folks came out to help!

We had parents and students transplanting compost into the raised beds of our new garden. We also were building our beds and soil bin that will supply our native plant restoration program. The 7th graders wre the real heroes, they had worked for two days straight doing a lot of digging and shoveling to help start this project!

Stacy has her class working on adjectives, so we had them use describing words for the vegetables and herbs that they tried.

Kindergarten taste test!!

Garden coordinator Anthony Warner raided the Orca p-patch and gathered a handful of yummy vegetables and fruits for kindergarten students in Mr. McCullough’s class to taste. They drew the vegetable, tasted it, and then drew how they felt when they ate it. This helps students connect writing with the tactile experience of eating yummy garden foods. The harvested foods were: lemon cucumber, tomatoes, chard, mustard greens, grapes, mint, green beans, and fennel.
