Many of the Kindergarten plantings are already bearing vegetables. For instance, full-fledged spicy radishes have arrived...
... and the potato seeds and three sisters beds--corn, squash and beans--are already bearing leaves.
While teachers, parents and children enjoy the summer break, take note: the vegetables, herbs, flowers and trees in the back of the school won't be going on vacation. In fact, they'll need our help. All summer long, members of the Longfellow community will be tending to their needs--such as watering and weeding--to make sure they stay healthy.
Would be garden volunteers, green thumbs or not, are encouraged to contact the school, or better yet, head out to the garden at 6pm on June 17th (access is through the back gate off the parking lot) as we discuss the summer maintenance schedule.
