It's that time of the year again! The sixth graders prepared the soil and beds. First, they proceeded to loosen the existing soil with a spading fork and shovel. Then, they added both soil and compost that was taken from another school location. They raked the surface smooth to increase water retention. The students made holes and shallow trenches; placed bean, and beet seeds, making sure they've left enough space between each seed. We have been blessed with rain lately, there was no need to water the soil as it was already moist. The students worked together very well with great enthusiasm. Participating in soil transformation process, they have learned the importance of good soil in agriculture. Once back in class, they recorded what they have planted in their science journal.
