What fun it was to have kindergarten out in the garden this month! Their first official visit to the garden consisted of a tour and an introduction to how we take care of the garden. Walking on the pathways, they discovered animal footprint stones, including the footprints of our school mascot, the coyote. We learned our school was named after the Sycamore tree, and identified it in the garden.
During our tour, we reached the “Little Red Barn” and learned about the tools we use to take care of the garden. These young students worked hard raking the pathways, pulling weeds and making our garden neat by picking up wayward trash.
Thank you to the wonderful Kindergarten teachers and Parent Volunteers who came out to the garden to help!
