Aiken's Teaching Garden
- Jennifer Watenpool, Fred L Aiken El Sch

The Thursday before Memorial Day Weekend, we received plants and help from local companies to come out and help us begin our teaching garden. The day that school was let out, letters were sent home and volunteers were chosen to tend to the garden all summer. Pictures were taken, food was harvested, and the plants were well cared for. As school began, we as a school harvested veggies and sent them either home or to the cafeteria for lunches. Now that the weather is turning colder, we will prepare for our garden for next season. We will start our seeds in February and begin planting in May again.
