The Raised Bed Garden at LFDCS... PDF Print E-mail

is a resource that brings the entire school community together. On a recent hot and sunny, September afternoon, eight 7th graders volunteered to help out in the gardens. They harvested tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, beans and cucumbers. Students were surprised to find so many vegetables to harvest. By the end of the activity they had become experts in judging whether the produce was ripe enough for picking. All the produce was later delivered to the Lower School Cafeteria, where the kitchen staff will use the food in the school lunches. Since this is the second year that the garden is in full operation, the amount of produce continues to increase. Each year we get better at preparing the soil, watering, planting and defending our produce from the local animal populationJ

We are grateful for advice and support from Groundwork’s Lawrence, Whole Kids Foundation, Johnny’s Seeds and Harvard Pilgrim.
