We are so happy to be starting a new year in the garden! It’s an exciting time to see so much change around the school, with peeks of green returning after the cold winter, and the kids able to run around in something besides snow pants!
We are working on many different areas of the garden this spring, including new raised beds! The beds are built using lasagna methods, also known as “no-dig” gardening or sheet mulching. On Helping Hands Day, many of our school dads worked hard layering newspapers, manure, compost, leaf mulch, peat moss, straw, and garden soil to make these amazing beds for our classes.
We are also working on our in-ground garden beds, in which we’ll be growing fruits and vegetables for school snacks, as well as flowers and herbs for our local pollinators.
