Raised Beds are Ready to Go!

Our annual Spring Spruce Up was held this weekend. This is a time when our school community gathers to clean up from winter and plant new for spring. Grandparent’s and Special Friend’s day is this Friday and students are excited to show off their amazing campus. Yesterday we were able to add 4 raised beds to our garden space near the hoop house. This outdoor laboratory will provide not only fresh produce but a place to observe plant growth and understand the symbiotic nature of growth. We will be planting seeds and transplants these next days and will be eager to see what our toil brings when we return to campus in September. 

A special thanks goes out to Mr. Rob Hansen, our super head of school, who not only wrote the grant but built the beds to make this happen on Saturday. 

New raised beds ready for seeds and transplants! Thank you Rob Hansen!

Putting the Hoop House to Bed

Today, with the first snowfall upon us, the 7th grade helped put the hoop house to bed. During our fall gardening class we planted mixed salad greens, arugula and some Swiss chard. The seedlings are tiny now but come February, when the light begins to change and the sun to shine, they will start to photosynthesize and grow. Last year we had two out of four boxes survive the bitter cold temperatures. We are hopeful that we have a milder winter and a better crop for our salad bar this next spring season. The hoop house is always a sweet space to go in the winter, as it is always warmer inside especially when the sun shines.
