DIGGING IN to Healthy Foods
Our DIG IN Garden Club has taught students the importance of eating vegetables.  We recently harvested carrots from our school garden!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We worked together to plant, maintain, and harvest our vegetables. Students were responsible for planting and watering throughout the year.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We have students in multiple grade levels who are committed to maintaining the garden.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We did have a cold winter so we had to make sure to take care of the plants when the temperatures got too cold. So far we have kept all plants growing!
