Changing of the seasons

It’s that fun part of the year where we have harvested as much as we can and then get ready to put the garden to rest for the season.

Students got divided up into 3 groups to partake in various garden related activities. Collecting leaves for mulch, spreading cover crop seed, and chopping old sunflower stalks and plants into compostable pieces. It’s active, it’s fun, and it is probably the last bit of moments we will spend outside before the rains set in.

Then we had a fabulous tea toast afterwards that really exemplifies the spirit of the Orca garden- hard work, celebration, and coming together to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
