Today, the 4th graders at Nellie Stone Johnson accepted a giant responsibility of taking care of NSJ’s herbs over the winter. They learned about the grow lab lights and how to properly use them. It was easy for them to recall their garden skills from their 3rd grade garden adventures already knowing how important proper water, sunlight, soil and air are to help plants grow.

Everyone got a kick out of the quote from a student passing by in the hall: “That’s bogus, how come we don’t have Youth Farm today.”

Soon, soon. I am certainly looking forward to more garden and cooking adventures this school year…
