Green Thumbs!

4A were busy in the garden today!

The students:

  • planted silverbeet and flat leaf parsley seedlings
  • weeded and turned the soil in the strawberry patch
  • tended to the raspberry plants
  • harvested hundreds of tomatoes
  • repurposed a planter box to hold the geraniums
  • moved the compost bins and tidied the bark
  • watered, watered, watered!

Thank you so much to our parent helpers Tony, Emily, Deb, Sarah H, Michelle and Fenella! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Thank you also to our fantastic foodie helpers who cooked with us in our first Kitchen Garden session 4 weeks ago : Sarah W, Brylie, Sharon, Bec and Katherine.

4A students, did you enjoy gardening today? 

Have you planted silverbeet and parsley seedlings in your veggie app?

Gardening this Friday

We will be out gardening this Friday. If you have some gardening gloves, bring them along as I think they will come in handy.

It has been quite hot and dry lately but our garden is surviving nicely. We are currently growing several different varieties of tomatoes, some leafy vegetables and an assortment of herbs such as mint and parsley.

Have you noticed anything else growing in the garden?

Are you looking forward to our first Kitchen Garden gardening session? 

Do you have any gardening experience?


In The Garden

Last week we visited the garden that is our Year 4 Kitchen Garden.

We practised using our iPads for photography. We had to think about angles, shapes, shadows and colours for our photos.

It was our first “official” visit to the garden and we found that lots was going on in there! Plants kept growing over the holidays and the insects were very busy buzzing about.

Since our visit, 4B and 4C have had their gardening sessions and they have tidied the garden beds up a lot.

Were you able to take a good photo in the garden?

Did you see any interesting plants or insects during our visit?
