Peas, carrots, swiss chard, kale, radishes, lettuces, and spinach were all a part of the first crop. These seeds and seedlings tolerate the cooler spring air and soil temperatures. The K4 classes will be planting the sunflowers in May to make this a school-wide project. Students also learned more about the emerging perennials in the pollinator gardens.
Gardens help promote life-long healthy lifestyle habits- eating healthy, moving our bodies and being outside. School gardens also enrich classroom curriculum, build community and provide wonderful hands-on, life-long learning for all ages.
The community is welcome to join us for Monday Garden Gatherings. 3 – 4:30 pm until June 4. Come help tend to the garden, learn, do a project, relax, and meet your neighbors.
To get involved or questions, please contact Garden Leader Liesl Schultz Hying at LINCSGarden@gmail.com.
