Spring Has Sprung!


We celebrated Spring with a lot of activity this week. All classes came out to plant the last of our cool season crops and a few early warm ones. We have lettuce, kale, onion, garlic, potato, squash, cucumber, swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, tomatoes, basil and eggplant. They worked together in groups to tend their beds, dig, plant and water their crops.

Our 6th graders are learning about a business plan by actually creating an herb business. We have sold fresh organic herbs at the Dallas Farmers Market for the last 4 weeks and each week, our sales have increased. We are 1/2 way to paying off our initial investment, and planned some strategies to increase sales in the next month. Thanks to Grow North Texas and Market Provisions for giving us this opportunity as we are filling a niche of growing and selling specialty herbs at the Dallas Farmers Market. Stop down on the weekend and check it out.

We had our 3rd annual Triple Play 60 Day, where each class spent 60 minutes playing.  The kids had a fun run, played sport court games and learned yoga on the farm in the shade. It was a great way to celebrate our partners in health.

We love the Spring and the new growth that we see everyday. E I E I O....,
