The G&T Garden Club/Environmental Club has prepared the garden for a long winter’s nap. The beds have been cleaned and a cover crop of rye grass has been spread. Planting cover crops is a sustainable method to boost soil fertility, attract pollinators, and divert pests. In the spring the club will turn the grasses back into the soil. Tulip bulbs for tracking climate change are in the process of being planted, students will participate in Journey North, a global study of wildlife migration and seasonal changes. In addition spinach and garlic have also been introduced to our learning garden; both grow well in cold temperatures. In addition students are reading Victor’s Garden for discussion, a book written to inspire children to make their communities healthy places to live and grow.
