First Grade's Outdoor Raised Beds
(Ayers, Boose, DeMichiel, Steed)
- In Spring of 2016, each first grade homeroom designed and built 4X 8 raised beds. They planted the Spring beds with seedlings from Forsyth Feed and Seed and from our school's seed station.
- In the Fall of 2017, the first grade homeroom planted a pumpkin patch - Jack Be Littles. We learned that seeds sow directly in the soil grew the best. We had to fight white flies with a soapy solution.
- Each homeroom designed their own Spring Garden.
- New SEASON!-
These first graders have to clean out the beds from last year before they can start their growing season. 1st graders are always eager to dive right in. They made quite a few discoveries.
