Planting ideas...

Last Friday STARworks Garden hosted a planting workshop for Star Elementary First graders!
Oh boy, the energy, questions and enthusiasm!
Huge thanks to Adam and Tony for helping me out. Adam has posted a great blog entry about all we did and more HERE.

There had to be lots of "wiggle releasing" in addition to planting flowers and herbs that I started in the greenhouse, and cotton and sunflower seeds...
After planting we had a little arts and crafts session, where every kid painted a little sign for their garden at home. Yesterday I dropped their dried signs along with a "mystery seed" packet at the elementary school and received lots of hugs!

As always we talked a little bit about recycling, composting, growing your own food and eating vegetables! We identified carrots, onions, cooking greens and some herbs, like basil and chamomile.
We love having kids in the garden!
