5th Grade Salad Garden

Our first garden bed was built during Newton Serves in the spring of 2016.

With help from the community, we built the bed and shoveled in the super soil.

5th graders planted the garden. They watered...


...harvested, and...

...at last, they ate it!

In the spring of 2017, we built two more beds.

Ms. Carey's class found ways to measure the volume, and then fill it with soil - with whatever tools they could find!

After carefully planting, watering and tending, we had another great harvest.

And enjoyed another delicious salad.
