A visit to a Vermont public school garden through the seasons.

Putting Our Garden to Bed for the Winter

garden to bed 11We grew some mighty bigarden to bed 4g sunflowers this year. They were tough to haul over to the compost pile, but the After School Program kids had a blast helping to clear the garden for tilling next week. They were asked to pull up as many plants as they were old, but most stayed on for the joy of running around in our garden! Look at their earnest hard working expressions.
