In October we started building a compost and a worm bin to contribute nutrients to the soil. After hearing the story of the Sacred Lotus Seed we also learned about seeds and planted some carrots, garlic and fava beans. These are all nutrient builds and yummy to eat too.
In September we have been exploring how plants grow, what makes healthy soil and different types of seeds. Our first project was the edible garden with creative puppet shows and our shovels we prepared the soil and planted kale, swiss chard, lettuce, beets, onions, leeks, and peas.
