Brooke Sellards Acosta, TES PTO shared: Seed Starting Lab - March Garden Science
It feels like the official start of the garden season. Each student planted a seed for the school garden and one to take home. They will be cared for in the greenhouse over the next couple months by Millcreek Homegrown. Stephanie Miller, Earl Miller
The weather was nice enough to work outside as well so we had many worker bees in the garden during recess times.
Jerusalem artichokes were prepared for students to sample and the vast majority really enjoyed them. They brought home the recipe and all the ingredients are available in the TES Kid's Garden! Thanks Pam Peak Meade!
Thanks to all our volunteers: Linda Aitchison, Jeannie Smith Crocker, Tina Lyon and Bob Taylor.
