#EDSafterschool Takes Their First Field Trip to the FWC


Last Thursday, students in the after school program took their first trip to FWC to play in the fields and explore the gardens.  In the forty four foot by four foot  garden beds we currently have peas, carrots, onions, squash, cucumbers, potatoes, and tomatoes in various stages of growth.  Each student helped to water the plants and brought home a sample of the tasty carrots and sugar snap peas that they harvested.  They also planted cantaloupe, watermelon, squash, and tomato seedlings that will provide veggies for this summer’s Food, Farm, and Fun camp at FWC.
Ms. Wilson’s second grade has taken particular interest in the FWC gardens.  They visit almost every week to observe the progress and health of the plants and record their findings with pictures and words in their science journals on the iPads.  Last week they harvested kale and sugar snap peas for the lunchroom salad bar. Today the seventh grader class will go to FWC to conduct water quality experiments and calculate the yield for the potato crop that they planted on February 15th.
