Take Me Outside to the Maple Grove Garden!


last week our class helped out with the school garden. We helped by building a new compost, picking lettuce, and then cleaning it, cutting down old rasbery cane and planting garlic. I helped out with almost every thing accept building the compost but I helped take out the old one. Ms. G’s parents came and helped out with building the compost and planting galic. Gardening was a lot more fun then I thought it would be. I thougt it would be hard making new beds for the garlic and picking lettuce but it was fun. I really enjoyed gardening and I hope we can do it agin! by RL

Thank you Ladies!
