Yesterday afternoon, GIAC preteens tapped sugar maples, sipped on sap, chopped firewood, started a cook fire and dipped crepes in warm maple syrup!
Kindergarteners at Northeast Elementary began after-school Garden Club! We visited Dewitt Middle School’s garden next door, and talked about compost, soil, sleeping plants, leaf mulch, and gardening tools. The next week, we learned all about germination by eating and exploring mung bean, clover and radish sprouts, planting the seeds in soil to take home, wearing lima bean sprout necklaces, and doing the Germination Dance.
Let the season begin
