Garden Corner

The Sand Point Elementary School Learning Garden program is an amazing after-school, hands-on learning opportunity for students at SPE! The program runs 6 weeks in the Fall and another 6 in the Spring. Kids get to learn about soil, insects, native plants, wildlife, seeds and more while planting and harvesting vegetables and flowers in the garden. Last week, the 1st-2nd graders made delicious salsa verde and the 3rd-5th graders got to fry up some tasty green tomatoes. If you didn’t get a chance to sign your child up this season, look for the fliers in kid mail early next Spring.

We will also be hosting a Garden Work Party after school on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15TH, from 2:30-5:30. No previous garden experience necessary. Kids welcome. Come check out the garden, help us winterize the beds, and take home some fresh greens! Hope to see you there!
