Earth Day Planting Boxes

Posted on

On April 24, students from JV Humphries took their True Cost of Food lesson further by planting their own food in the schoolyard. Students re-built the planter boxes first created by the Beyond Recycling class 2 years ago. We turned the soil, added well rotted compost to fertilize, and planted various greens, spinach, lettuce, and radishes. Students found their own niche in the project, with some focusing of working the soil and others working to fix the boxes. Students are looking forward to eating from their planter boxes through the month of June.
