Ms. Brickey, Ms. Altston, Ms. Henry, and their wonderful first grade students did a great job growing a beautiful garden this spring! In the mean time, they learned about the importance and contents of soil, what plants need, what animals need, and what makes an ecosystem healthy. As a reward for such great work, all three classes came together for a harvest party last week. Along with three great volunteers from Chapel Hill Baptist in Oine, students harvested, washed, and prepared a salad for tasting. They dressed a delicious salad of carrots, radishes, cucumbers, kale, and lettuce with ranch we made during our goods and services lesson a couple days beforehand. Students enjoyed trying some new veggies and partying garden-style!
