building community

Our HUGE bag of soil arrived the other day, so we were able to finish planting all of the donations we received from our families.  We started off by filling scoops and buckets for the children.  As the height of the bag became more manageable, they began to fill their own buckets.  This could have resulted in one huge soil pit.  Instead, the children took so much care to fill their containers and carry soil over to the planters.  I love how their garden is building community – not only amongst the children, but throughout the school.  The Grade 1 students in Mrs. Halliwell’s class have had composting worms in their classroom this year.  They are becoming quite the environmentalists!  They surprised us with containers of compost which we added to our soil.  A HUGE thanks to Mrs. Halliwell and her eco-friendly students!
