Thanks to Former Marquez Student, Piers Carmichael
We have some new colorful furniture and teaching equipment in the edible garden courtesy of former student, Piers Carmichael, a boy scout who chose the garden for his Eagle Scout project. The cold-frame, next to the shed, will enable us to grow seeds outside for longer as it'll keep them warmer. The root view box will enable the students to see the roots grow. Finally, the newly painted table and chairs will be useful for teaching and fun for the kids to sit on. They had been covered with peeling white paint. Thanks to the scouts from Troop 223 who worked on this project!
Our new cold frame
The root view box will be a good teaching aid.
The table and chairs will be fun to use and useful!
