Here’s what’s up this late winter/spring in our Hillside Gardens!   (March 2011)

Kindergarten classes were given seeds last week to start a salad garden in their classrooms which they will transplant in their beds around spring break.  Also, they have a seed starting project for mother’s day!

And up at the front of the school, at the tic-tac-toe gardens, we are planning an alphabet garden (where we use the letters of the alphabet on our row markers as a way to introduce our audience to plants) for the spring/early summer, and then in the fall, we’ll plant a 3 sisters garden (corn, beans, squash–and pumpkins) and brassica beds.

Check back and we’ll let you know how our plans progress!
