The summer Weeds n’ Seeds program was a success, the kids had a great time and the teachers loved it too.
The high school Ecology class students began working in the garden on Wednesday, August 22. We will just have the morning classes for now on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday since it’s still too hot for the students to work outside in the afternoon. Once it cools down we can do afternoon classes on Monday and Wednesday for the rest of the school year.
Here are the links to the video (Nov 2017) and NPR news story about the garden (May 2018).
Here is a video of the students at work building plant beds:
