Second Graders Harvest School Garden

Mrs. Moulton’s class shows their harvest.

This fall, students from Mrs. Moulton’s second grade class helped harvest the school garden. Most of the produce was harvested by the by students who maintained the school garden over the summer. But during this late harvest, the second graders collected carrots and kale, as well as herbs such as thyme, oregano, rosemary and parsley. The students were excited to see what was under the dirt as they sifted through the soil, searching for carrots. And smelling the different herbs was fun!

The school garden was planted in the spring by students, and maintained over the summer by the City of Winooski Teen Farm Crew. We reported on those activities in the August 2015 issue of the district newsletter (page 10).
