Kids Garden

Planting mustard seeds

Kids Garden program was better than ever this summer.

With the help of Bellarmine student volunteers, we transformed the Kids Garden space in late May to provide plenty of space in the Kids Garden.

With the help of our Garden Intern Lindsey Samotis, we created our first Kids Garden Curriculum which we’ll use for years to come.

Me:       Kids! What do all plants need to grow?
Kids:     Soil, Water, Sun!

We built good soil composting, we planted seeds, we watered seeds, we tended plants, we harvested, we dried, we ate.

Planting, Harvesting, Preserving, Eating

We're continuing Kids Garden programming into the fall this year             through the new Garden Club. Interested students will work in the gardens and all over campus on Thursday afternoon learning about the environment.
