The Farm to School group honored Cindy Gauthier in the garden on June 7 by planting two grapevines and hanging a plaque on the newly built trellis (by Dave Wilcox). She was acknowledged for years of initiating amazing place-based learning opportunities for Berlin students, related to health and wellness (e.g., garden, orchard, kitchen cart, Junior Iron Chef, gleaning, etc.)
Harvesting Worm Casting
The Compost Club harvested the worm castings from EVERYclassroom’s vermi-composters. The castings are a rich fertilizer that FREE and made by the kids and the worms! Each classroom uses the castings when they plant their raised bed in the school garden. We will reap the benefits during the fall harvest!
Thank you for your generous seedling donations for classroom garden planting:
