Colonial Garden

4th graders will plant a colonial garden in the 9th Street Community Garden. We have planted lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, kale, and pea seeds in flats. They are germinating and growing in a light cart in our classroom. We have learned some important lessons about how deep to plant seeds and how many seeds to plant in each cell. On Wednesday afternoon we will work with Nancy Duncan and Ann Bass to plant our little plants in the garden. Our hope is that they will provide a bountiful spring crop. We will harvest the food and share it with local agencies that provide food for the hungry.
