Food and Water

In order for plants to grow, they need a little help! Just like humans, they require a healthy dose of nutrients and a good supply of water in order to reach their healthiest growth potential. 7th-graders got to experience both essential requirements for growth during their time in the patch. On a nice rainy day (water – check) they learned all about composting (nutrients – check). Led by Mark Hay, the 7th-graders were taught what it takes to make nutrient rich compost that is used to enhance the soil in the planting beds. They were joined by Cynthia Price, Eve Fein, and Ms. K. The rain did not deter the 7th-graders as they got their hands dirty while examining the different stages of composting. Enjoy the beautiful photos that captured the rainy day.
