Our 4-H program continues to grow out at Flowing Wells Campus! The fourth graders spent the afternoon exploring soil and water and how they work together to provide what plants need to grow. To wrap up their day, the kids made a planter to illustrate what they had learned.

The sixth grade class also visited FWC this week and did a little garden work. They spent some time checking on what has already been planted and found some beautiful zephyr squash and black beauty zucchini growing.  They also utilized the square foot gardening technique to organize their plantings of carrots, lettuce, radishes, and beets.  During a break in their work, the kids enjoyed some quiet time observing and reflecting on the beauty surrounding them.
