Spring Planting & Agriculture Lessons

The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty. We have an entire school population who dig in every week to learn from the soil, plants, animals and each other. This week, we planted lettuce, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts and cabbage. In addition to these new crops, every class bed has potatoes, onions and garlic growing in them. Now is the time that we observe, troubleshoot and tend to the garden with hopes of a big harvest in May.

6th graders had the opportunity to hear from Susie Marshall of Grow North Texas. She is working with others in our area to increase food production and access for all. She will be featured in our urban agriculture project that 6 grade has been working on this year. The project will be completed and showcased at Earth Day Texas and A Peep At The Coops Urban Coop Tour this spring. You will want to see it!

5th graders are learning about local food with our Whole Kids Foundation Innovation Grant. This week, they learned about the Incredible Edible Egg. #Yum

Our farm continues to grow and bloom! Thanks so much for your support! Check back to watch us grow.
