Breaking ground on new garden area!

Many classes have been involved with breaking ground on a sad, unused area of space next to our play field. Jeff’s science/math class has been studying food with Anthony, so what better way to get to the heart of it, then to get growing! Orca has an incredible garden program, but we have lacked the capacity to grow and eat more food. Now we will have an amazing garden space after all the hard work of various classes. If we are going to study and teach sustainability, isn’t organic gardening a very real experiential opportunity? With this space, students can have more opportunities to plant, grow, nurture and harvest yummy organic food. It was great to get these classes outside too, after a long period of grey and cold Seattle weather.
