The Wellton Sow It Forward met on May 31, the last day of our school year. We are looking forward to this new addition to our curriculum. We will be researching vertical gardening and looking for ways to enhance our Life Cycle of plants segment and explore lLiving versus nonliving things. These are standards that are taught in every grade level. The team was very excited to have a hands on, living garden to work with. In our part of campus, we have very little space to grow an actual in ground garden. The vertical garden is the perfect tool to enhance our students growing experience.
During this summer break we will be researching vertical gardening, curriculum to add to our existing growing units and most exciting...what to grow. Many of our students have never seen a garden or experienced how to grow something, even though they live in the agricultural community. It is exciting to be able to bring the vertical garden into the classroom and create the tie into our community and daily lives of our students.
