PS 130 Bronx- 5th Grade Garden & Compost Instruction
We helped a public elementary school prep their garden plot in the Fall for planting in Spring, and they wanted to learn about compost.
60 5th grade students in a 7-week, push-in program during the school day.
Lessons on the built and natural environment and our need for both. Indoor/outdoor activities on weeds (the good and the bad), how seeds travel and grow, the in’s and out’s of composting and caring for an indoor worm bin, and how it benefits a garden by providing nutrients, prepared the student groups for a school presentation on how to care for a garden.
So much to learn from the soil!
