Hawthorne Elementary School Garden Kick-Off!!!

 Hawthorne Garden!!

We've had an AMAZING time kicking off the Hawthorne Elementary School Garden Project. A great group of kids showed up, our beds are ready (manure all mixed in!) and we are excited to explore themes of Food Justice, Interconnectedness, Garden Literacy, and---a topic the kids are surprisingly interested in-Companion Planting! 

Last week we shaped up our beds to get them ready for planting, explored the world of Worms and Ducks and continued getting to know each other and build relationships. 

Any and All volunteers are welcome! Join us any Monday at 2:30 p.m. in the Courtyard of Hawthorne Elementary School!
