It has been a ferocious winter with lots of rain, freezing weather and snow, but in between the gusts and downpours, the students have been helping to turn over cover crops and get the School Farm ready for the new growing season. We’ve started all classes K-5 and the students sowed peas to examine before being planted out.
The pumpkins fertilizing our fruit trees are decomposing quite nicely. The dwarf scotch curly kale is quite sweet and delicious, a favorite with the children. And quite spectacularly, Val Twomey’s class helped move the veggie tunnel! Never underestimate the capacity of 20 second graders!
