Kenwood Garden is well underway with the help of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students! Thanks to all the hard work from families and community volunteers. When it was too cold outside, we were busy inside working on planning, designing and crafting. Then when it was warm enough we headed outside to get planting.
We need volunteers to help water and weed. Over the Summer there will also be an opportunity to meet every Tuesday morning at 10am where we will use the fresh produce from our garden. Families will also have an opportunity to adopt our garden this Summer.
Take a look at all of our had work this year...
At the beginning of winter we learned about different types of gardens and practiced designing our own beds.
We learned about the optimum germination conditions for seeds and planted some to take home.
In out Lit in the Garden class we took inspiration from authors, artists and poets and came up with our own songs, stories and poems.
When it was finally warm enough to head outside, students were eager to learn about the different insects in the garden and then go out and find some. We measured, tilled and amended our beds so they would be a great place for our new seedlings. We also played with more worms!
We painted, crafted and earned our green and yellow thumbs and arms...
At our workday, we spruced up the Little Free Library and cleared out our main bed (getting it ready for pumpkins).
We hauled, we dug, we watered and weeded
We made our garden pretty. Soon we will lay down mulch, sit back and watch our garden grow!
