The K3M class have been learning about the life-cycle of plants. We planted some pumpkin seeds in class a month ago and have been excitedly tend and watch them grow into seedlings. Last week they were ready to be transplanted into the Global Garden. We'll be looking after them and hope to see them grow into a fine harvest! We will be trying our hand at growing melons and tomatoes over the coming weeks among other fruit and vegetables too. Wish us luck!
For the past few weeks the sixth-grade students have watched the pods develop on the bottom of the plants first and then more beans appeared, working their way upwards. The plants reached more than 4 feet tall. Once the students picked the beans, they decided to make a fava bean salad that they shared with other students and staff in the school's canteen. Later on, they started harvesting the sugar snap peas. They couldn't resist the crunchy texture and sweet flavor that they proceeded to eat them raw right out of the garden. They were delicious!
