Fall Harvest

Our school garden saw a plentiful harvest this year!  We grow carrots, tomatoes, onions, potatoes and peppers all of which are used in the hot lunch program.  We also saw our first few apples on the trees that were planted in the spring. Both the garden and the orchard provide great hands-on learning environments for our students and provide us with fresh veggies (and eventually apples too) for our lunch program!
 
Today, 1st graders helped to care for the trees as part of their Johnny Appleseed Day festivities and our 5th graders harvested the remaining carrots!
