Preparing Our Winter Garden

Our community garden is being prepared for winter. In science, sixth grade students did a soil test to determine whether our soil was neutral, alkaline, or acidic. They adjusted the soil to the appropriate pH level and readied our garden for planting. Once the soil is ready, the sixth graders will bring their 2nd grade buddies to the garden to plant seeds. The vegetables grown in our garden are donated to our parish’s Community Ministry food kitchen. We love having hands-on science tied to community service! Mrs. Floerke, our middle school science teacher, is bringing science to life!
