We plant the farm so that we can eat as many veggies as possible before school gets out! Peas, carrots, radishes, lettuce, spinach, kale and kale flowers, strawberries, broccoli, edible flowers and our own popcorn… YUM!
The students have helped plant all these veggies. A really fun class is the salad bar garden, where students plant a seed of lettuce, spinach and bok choy in a 4-inch pot, watch them sprout and grow and then plant it. These little salad bars grown into a spectacular bed of salad greens that are picked by the students and enjoyed in all their diversity and tastiness.
The students are becoming skilled at bed prep and planting!
The second graders finished their rain garden project!
These are some of the many activities the students have experienced at the School Farm! Now, school’s out and we’re beginning our summer plantings for the fall harvest when the students return.
Come to our family work parties this summer!
