We are very proud of our garden at COLM, which acts as an important extension of our classrooms. It is also a certified Schoolyard Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation. Each fall we spend a morning working together in the garden and getting it ready for winter. Thanks to the help of our dedicated parent volunteers, we got a lot of work done today!
First up was weeding and cleaning up. We found some stray summer vegetables and A LOT of weeds!
We also pulled out some really long roots. Finally, we were ready to plant. We planted mums, pansies, herbs, cabbage, radish, carrots, and kale. The grownups helped prune and do even more weeding.
It was really amazing how hard the children worked. They loved spending time outside and spent almost the whole morning gardening.
We finished the day with a lovely 'pizza picnic' in the garden. What a blessing it is to be able to share this beautiful space with our children and families! A huge thank you to everyone who donated plants and helped this morning. We couldn't do it without you!
We are an AMI accredited Montessori school growing daily in spirit & intellect!
