The 28 third graders who came to our garden Tuesday did not need much coaching in appreciating nature.
The loved the carrots and took them back to school for afternoon snacks.. Rosemary was another hit. Last week one of the kids said he would sleep with Rosemary under his pillow. Maybe there will be alot of Rosemary under pillows this week!
It was a day of garden based education: learning the science of compost, how to attract wildlife to the garden, growing vegetables like beans, carrots, lettuce, and swiss chard; and how flowers regenerate by seed.
