Garden Lunch

Our Garden Educator Elin Marley has been back since September, taking classes into the Learning Garden.  Teachers have signed up for scissor salsa, kale chips, garden mapping and seed scavenger hunts.  Find out more about Elin’s lesson plans and see some great photos of what the kids have been up to on Elin’s Twitter too.

Also the garden is open at lunch on Thursdays depending on the weather!  Parents are welcome to join in.  Last week, there was a bit of light weeding, some picking up of trash and some kids got to plant radish seeds.  Lemon balm was smelled and some chives were tasted.  gardenlunch copy.jpg
