Early childhood science students got busy this week preparing for spring gardening! Indoors, several classes started seedlings which are germinating under grow light lamps in Ms. Kathy’s classroom. Others tilled soil in the raised beds outside.
Per the newly revised garden map, preK-1 will start eggplant, calendula and some sunflowers inside while students in preK-2 focus on tomatoes, marigold and sunflowers. K-1 has started basil, marigolds and tomatoes; K-2 is in charge of getting the nasturtiums going and K-3 kicks off the kale and beets. Some of the raised beds contain garlic from the fall, too. First graders will sow Swiss chard and bok choy (1-1) as well as radish (1-2) beets and carrots (1-3).
