The week of planting

Our school year is very quickly coming to an end this week, but before we are all gone for the summer, the students are getting an opportunity to plant the seedlings they've been growing all spring.  They love helping to plant the seedlings, turn over the soil and weed, and help water all the seedlings still left to be planted!  One of our garden coordinators Julie Taylor, will be leading a gardening class once a week in our school garden with all of the summer campers at the Neighborhood House here in Northeast Harbor.  The campers will maintain the garden, and help harvest vegetables when they are ready mid summer.  Many of our crops will be ready in the fall,  and will be incorporated into our school lunches!
