Back to School – Elmwood Raises Four Garden Beds

Elmwood SchoolPlanting Herbs




At 9:00 am, Wednesday Sept. 16th, I headed to Elmwood School to help Tracey and Tory, from Growing up Organic, and 20 excited sixth grade girls build four garden beds. It was nice to get one last hourah in before the fall brings the cold weather and frost. The girls helped with everything but the chainsaw – collecting logs, shovelling compost, hammering nails and finally planting some herbs, lettuce, and squash that had been started in pots in preparation for the late planting.  In another couple of weeks they will be enjoying a huge salad!
