2nd Grade Earth Day Celebration with Whole Foods
Today was the second annual Earth Day celebration for the 2nd grade. As last year, Whole Foods provided fruit and vegetable platters, seeds and organic potting soil. Mrs. Fein's class, Mr. Jacobs' class, Ms. Connor's class and Ms. Abrams' class each visited the garden. The children had their choice of fruit and vegetables. Next, they planted either radish or kale seeds in peat pots which are made of peat moss and wood pulp and are 100% biodegradable. The students were told to keep the soil moist and other directions will be sent home via their teachers. Thanks to Victoria Polakoff of Whole Foods Santa Monica and a former Palisadian, for her contributions!
