Our sixth Workshop Series was blessed with a brilliantly sunny day. The kind of day where you can hear the robins, smell the sweet air, and the sun's warmth on your face. We were thrilled to have sun because we spent the whole morning outdoors working in the garden! We had three stations set up for the student teachers.
The first station was digging manure into garden beds. Manure helps improve the organic matter and nutrients in the soil, so that plants that go in these beds will have a good start for the season.
As part of the second station, we shared an inexpensive, easy trick for making newspaper plant pots. These biodegradable pots only require a glass and a sheet of newspaper to be created - great for using in the classroom . Check out step-by-step instructions here.
