The First Harvest at the Flowing Wells Campus
Last week marked the first harvest from our educational gardens at the Flowing Wells Campus. The students were excited to find the reward of the first squash, zucchini, kale and collards after putting in the hard work of building garden beds, hauling dirt and water, starting seeds, and transplanting seedlings. Now that they have seen the fruits of their labors (literally!), we will bless the bounty in chapel this week and on Thursday, Alyssa Hicks will be using the veggies to make a casserole to be served with lunch. Students will be back at the Flowing Wells Campus this week to make observations about our plants that will continue to grow into the fall months.
