It's so green!

Today was my first time in the garden in two weeks because of our spring break, and I have to say that it brought a smile to my face walking outside and seeing how much everything has grown! Any doubts I had for the garden, because of all our cold weather, were instantly forgotten. It looks amazing, and it's only going to get better!

As for working with the kids, our 5th grade class didn't come out today, but we started something fun with Ms. Frey's 3rd grade EBD class who we see each week. It's that time of the year for the students to start their own science projects, and since Ms. Frey's class is lucky enough to be a part of the garden each week they decided to do something with plants! Each of the students, either alone or in groups, are going to use bean plants to test a variable of their choice. For example, one student is going to test how the type of water a plant gets (fresh or salt) affects its growth. Samantha, Emma, and I will be working with the class on their science projects for the rest of the year, while incorporating topics we have learned in the garden in our discussions.

That's about it for today, below are a few new pictures!
