Finelite went back to school again this month with the Warman Collective Garden, a spectacular group that we’ve been a part of for the past couple of years. This time, it was the grade 2 students who got to get their hands dirty. An added bonus for them – they got to fill their bellies with the Stone Soup we made on site. (If you don’t know the story of Stone Soup and you’re making a face right now thinking “Why would they put stones in soup??” then you can learn about it here.)
The kids planted tomatoes and made workbooks to track the growth of the little plant babies over the next couple of months. Once the plants are strong enough (and if this weather ever smartens up!) we’ll move them over to our Collective Garden space at the high school. The kids will take a field trip to visit their (hopefully prolific) plants at the end of the school year.
If you don’t know about the Warman Collective Garden yet, you should spend some time on the website and Facebook page. We currently run a unique summer program called the Kids In The Garden, and we have a wish list of future programs a mile long. We have an ongoing need for volunteers, both in the garden and in the community, so please join us!
See you at the garden!
