The children always have fun getting dirty while gardening. They are starting to understand patience as they wait for vegetables to grow. Responsibility is another lesson they have learned as they see how necessary their care is to the garden. They have also learned about nurturing a life and what it takes to keep something alive. The kids love looking for insects and worms. Gardening introduced them to some of the living creatures in the soil, under rocks and on plants.
Our class is planting herbs for our herb garden! Stay tuned to see how it develops! So far the basil is growing wonderfully!
