Garden Club Week 6 – Planning for Growth
This week our Sycamore Garden Club members made a sign to announce the school garden space and acknowledge the hands, hearts and minds that helped create our our Living Wall, Worm Composting Cafe and Earthboxes.
With the help of Manuel, our custodial engineer on campus, the Garden Club sign now adorns the top of the Living Wall.
After making the sign, our gardeners checked on the radishes and spinach in our Earthboxes. They are growing slower than expected, so we may have to add on a week before we are able to harvest them. Next, gardeners watered the Living Wall and Earth Boxes and headed over to the kindergarten quad for a look at a space Mrs. Lawrence and I thought would be a great spot to extend our School Garden with a combination of in-ground and raised beds.
As we wrapped up this week’s meeting, Mrs. Lawrence and I were so pleased to find this cute, little lady bug visiting our garden. What a great science lesson in drawing additional members (small but important) into our learning environment.
Next week is our last week of garden club. We will wrap things up by making and eating a delicious dip made with the spinach and radishes we have grown!
