School Garden Fall Planting

Last week 20 classes participated in a fall planting marathon in the Fernbank school garden.  Over the course of two days, about 450 students planted kale, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, radishes,  beets, red leaf lettuce, chard, herbs and Asian greens.  Our garden beds are ready to be watered and watched as our fall crop begins to grow!
Thank you to our wonderful teachers for their enthusiasm and our fantastic parent volunteers for their time and energy.  The kids are very excited to learn that THIS is how our garden grows.
