Our seven school lunch beds, six theme beds, raspberries, blueberries, and fruit trees are all doing spectacularly well this year. TES summer school students adopted garden beds as a part of their summer curriculum. They learned how to take care of a garden: weeding, thinning, watering, deadheading, and picking bugs – and they learned a lot about science and math along the way! They kept their compost through the session to learn from it before adding it to the on-site compost system. On the last day of class the students had a harvest party with fresh salad and veggies, nasturtium pesto, and homemade ice cream with fresh blueberries. – Cat Buxton, School Garden Manager, Thetford Elementary School, Thetford, VT
