April-February Garden Tour, 2015

We’re overdue for a seasonal look around the garden.  Join me.

Golden Yarrow doing its thing, on the sides of the Kandu Gate.  This native installation was put in last year, with Art Cole, and so this is the first year we’re seeing the plants bloom.  Gorgeous.IMG_5913

Fourth grade students gathered daffodils to enter in the annual show at Town Hall.  (See here for more information.)  Another year, another fistful of blue and red ribbons.

Afterschool Club Jaguar students create a spring-inspired bulletin board of veggie facts, garden jokes and announcements.

Finally, fourth grade students had a blast “decorating” the garden with annuals in all of our containers, window boxes and this cute Radio Flyer wagon.

  1. Wholesome and lovely, Trish. I wish I could ask you about every child. All children, I have found, look radiant when outside, properly dressed, hands in the dirt, adults to guide and not scold…Another year of beautiful work, indeed, that will stay with them always.

    • Thanks for the thoughtful response, Di. On my way to Northern California for a Farm to School conference to learn more about this movemet—for kids and good food and school gardens—at the state and national level. Stuff you’d love. 🙂
