Conveniently located beside one of the main play sets (and more importantly, a water source), kids love to watch the garden grow.
Each season our committee works with each grade level lead to determine what should be planted in their garden. Then, students have to opportunity at recess to come and plant in their own garden – HOW COOL!
They enjoy watching it grow and then harvesting it. Teachers often take items grown in their gardens back to their rooms and allow the students to taste the fruits of their labor, literally.
