The Anneliese Garden Team put on a mini Farmer's Market this week to welcome the fall season and all of its bounty. We sold fresh, organic cabbage, persimmons, and herb bouquets from the Willowbrook Garden, raising a total of $81 for the School Fund! A big thank you to the 2nd graders who helped harvest, wash, and assemble these edible goodies!
Today, Andy brought several bins of compost to the nursery playground to build a new garden bed! The youngins had a blast shoveling out the compost and adding it to the soil, where they will soon grow snap peas, lettuce, chard, and late season carrots. Some of the teachers said they have never seen these kids so calm and focused, which only reminded the garden team about the importance of connecting with nature at a young age.
