Sunny summer days ahead!

Hello gardeners!

Can you believe it has already been a year since we all first stepped into the garden!?  It certainly has been an exciting year and a continual learning experience.  We have grown a great variety of produce this year and have witnessed the miraculous journey of a seed to a lovely piece of fruit or vegetable.  We have observed the effects that weather and our environment have on our crops and the habitat of the garden.  Some of the kids were also lucky to catch glimpses of the insects in action, both helpful and harmful.  
Take a minute to scroll through the first photos of what was just an empty plot of grass and see all that has happened to take us to what our garden is today!  

I hope that the students, teachers, faculty, and volunteers have enjoyed the addition of the garden to Reynolds elementary and that together we can work towards making this outdoor learning center a fantastic complement to the schools learning tools!
Looking towards the fall, please reach out to me with any ideas, feedback or comments, this is our garden and the more variety in participation the better!
Also, we will be working in the garden over the summer, planting, harvesting, cleaning, maintaining and PICKLING, we will have many okra, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant and much more, if you like gardening please let me know and I can keep you informed on our work days!

See all the exciting photos below and have a great summer, don't be strangers!
Thank you for joining us on this adventure in learning!
