On Wednesday, May 23, we were visited by Ms Lindman's and Ms Kaplan’s pre-K classes. Students from both classes were divided up into groups by the teachers and parent-chaperones, and garden club volunteers provided garden tours tailored to this age group. Among the highlights—according to the kids—were the pond and the compost area. As part of their curriculum, both classes brought their own kitchen scraps from home to add to the club’s compost. Well done!
Later in the week, Garden Club member Kim Massey brought her 7th grade class from The Child School to explore the garden. Garden Club members (including President Neal Weissman) provided a more advanced tour, and the students ended their tour by spending time in Ms. Massey’s garden plot in C-Section. They’ll be visiting again in June to see how the garden has changed, how various plants have grown, and to get a tutorial on composting from Anthony Longo.
