Second Week of Spring Program!

Check out what we did this week!
- get-to-know-you games
- gathered up (and taste-tested) a bunch of herbs to make...drum roll please...our very own SALVE*!
-we took care of all of the fruit trees: weeded around them, fed them compost, blanketed them with wood chips. We also planted two new Mandarin trees! We hope for sweet and healthy fruit this year.

*What's a salve? Good question. A salve is like a lotion that you put on your skin when you have a rash, a sore, or just dry skin. It smells good too.

First Week of Spring Program

During the first week of the Spring program we potted up plants to stay out of the rain, watched Harry eat a worm, and made smoothies (woohoo!).
