We had so much fun with the new kindergarteners in both gardens last Friday!
In the garden classroom, they explored the garden, looking for signs of fall. They also completed a fall scavenger hunt to find things like blooming flowers, fall colored leaves, seed pods, flower buds, mushrooms, dried up flowers and leaves, and fall colored leaves.
In the vegetable garden, they saw that we are growing tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, kale, beans, popcorn, lettuce, carrots, herbs, and squash. We also saw a cabbage white caterpillar and some ladybug larvae.
In their final activity, they got to be scientists and used magnifying glasses to carefully observe and draw some different types of seeds in vegetables and flowers.
Thank you to all of our wonderful parent volunteers for
coming out to make this possible!
