We have launched a new garden at the High School! John Patton, HS Principal, asked us if we could turn the lawn out front into a garden that would grow vegetables for the students, flowers for pollinating and beneficial insects, and herbs for culinary classes, as well as provide a wide range of garden-based curriculum opportunities for the High School students and incoming Middle School students. Yes!
On March 8, the only sunny day in weeks of rain, Chris Korrow came with his super shovel spader and tilled the field that had been staked out with beds for growing and a large area for picnic tables and gatherings.
On Earth Day, over 300 HS students will be helping to install the fence, amend the beds with compost, terrace the slope, and plant veggie starts. Stay tuned!
