Students enjoyed another visit to Vintage Gardens. They enjoyed setting free some butterflies we raised from caterpillars and munching on Sugar Snap Peas right off the vine. They spread fresh bark between the plots to keep down the dirt and weeds. We also got some tomatoes planted.
We chowed down on a salad we made from lettuce, carrots, snap peas, onion tops, and tomatoes. We washed up the vegetables in our sink spinning them dry. Then we tossed them into a colorful salad. The salad was a big hit. Students loved eating the food they grew.
Vintage's 4th Grade Garden Club will use a digital camera, computer, and/or an iPad and to photograph and journal what is happening on campus regarding gardening, school beautification, nature and more.
