The kids were doing some really great garden maintenance in the past few weeks: They weeded by the school entrance wall, weeded the garden beds, spaced out seedlings of chard and quinoa and thinned carrots.

Also, our new garden signs have been cut for us by Van Tech shop students and sanded by the kids during lunch break. Last night the signs received a coat of primer during our annual End of Year BBQ an potluck. Next they will be painted – some next week and the rest in the Fall.


And… we had so much fun at lunch break on Friday shoveling and raking bark mulch into the garden! It will help us smother weeds and grass between the flower beds:)
