The Pollinator Garden is where our youngest students do most of their gardening work. The garden is close to the school building (and the hose), and contains perennials such as purple iris, chives and hosta. The children start flowers from seeds in the spring, and take care of the young plants until the end of our school year at the beginning of June
Although many of our students have never gardened before, most of them quickly discover that they do enjoy gardening. Turning the earth, pulling out “weeds,” and discovering worms and beetles are all delightful work. As they maintain the garden and watch young plants grow, they learn many things about God’s creation.
