Our Friends From Drinkwater

p2090023.jpgWell they came ready to seed and do some snow shoeing and it’s only April 11th. Our friends from Drinkwater School were back today planting seeds with the 7th grade students getting ready for their own school garden. We hope to have them back soon to get them started with a worm bin and lesson on making good compost.

    Hi Tabby, Forest, Kate, Mr. Thurston, Mr. Tanguay, and others who made our visit to the Greenhouse and THMS a great learning and fun experience. We were able to plant 3 1/2 large flats of seeds (soon to be seedlints) and take a nice hike around the trails behind the school. Just what I needed, a little dirt, fresh air, seeing some old friends, and meeting some new ones.

    Thanks,

    Mr. Anderson

    Drinkwater 4th and 5th graders had a great time getting their hands in the soil. It is such a wonderful way to make their studies real. We are all looking forward to having some worms and reactivating our composting program.
    Our seeds are sprouting – I hope we can get them into the garden before school gets out!

    Dear Garden project,
    I have learned that the FBI stands for.
    F=Fungus
    B=Backtiria
    I=Insects
    I got to see the different layers of soil online,but then I got to see the layers of soil in real life.I think the last layer is very cool,because it feels like clay,it is clay.

    Dear Garden Project,
    I really like the garden project because we get to go outside and learn about something fun and it’s all hands on activities like planting, scooping compost and making compost and it’s nice meeting our next year peers.

    Dear Garden Project,
    I really enjoyed our visits to the green house. I learned a lot. One thing I learned is that there is an A horizon, a B horizon, and a B2 horizon in soil. I also learned that soil is made from living organics, dead organics (fungus, bacteria, and insects,) minerals, water and air. We also worked with worms. They stunk but it was fun anyway. I hope we can come back again.
