It's days like today that I hope are etched in the hearts and minds of these students forever. It's their school. It's their garden. It's their food!

4K students, along with their 2/3 reading buddies, had the opportunity to water, weed, and sample some of the wonderful foods in the garden.
It's amazing what children are willing to try when they grow it!
We ate some kale, spinach, chives, lettuce, broccoli rabe, and even dandelion greens.
Many other classrooms are enjoying the garden as well. Whether it's working on math concepts such as real life application of area and perimeter, comparing the garden map to the real garden, or sampling some of the tasty greens that are growing in abundance, the LINCS garden has become a part of LINCS.
A little work has gone a long way and the LINCS garden is thriving!

The tomato plants that were started from seed several weeks ago are thriving in the greenhouse. So much so that they had to be transplanted into bigger containers. We planted some seeds at the same time in our classroom and can't believe the difference! One 4K student exclaimed "the plants get more photosynthesis time in the greenhouse for sun to turn into food." They get it!!

Working together, the students planted kale, dandelion greens, spinach, radishes, carrots, and more. We can't wait to enjoy some of these yummy foods before the end of the school year.
