Friday at the Garden– Growing 5th Graders and a Plant Nursery

Friday dawned warm and tropical at The Fruitful Field and the action began with a group of volunteers arriving to set up for the arrival of 100+ 5th graders from Tedder Elementary. At 9:00 sharp they arrived ready to learn and soak up some garden atmosphere.

They made bird feeders

Planted sunflowers along I-95

Flew Lady bugs

And enjoyed Pergola #1, decking in out with lots of tied-on bird feeders!

Meanwhile, the Plant Nursery construction continued with George and Will squaring off the sides of the foundation so that soon we will have covered space with work benches on which to sprout vegetable and tree seedlings of all kinds!
