Composting and Working in the Garden

Grade 2 are our campus composters, helping by bringing down all the compostable lunch items to the garden.  But what can we compost?  We broke it down in Garden class this week and made posters to share in chapel.  They are going to make their job easier by teaching everyone else about what goes into the compost.  See them in action!

Kindergarten is starting out the year in Garden by studying senses and today we used them to work in the garden.  We took pictures (sight), we pulled weeds (touch) and protected our hands with gloves, and we tasted some parsley (and even had seconds!).  Kindergarteners are hard workers!  When the roots dug deep they banded together to work on a plant.  We had to leave one behind that we just couldn’t get out!
