Blueberry Fields Forever

We’re expanding! At our last Green LIONS Garden Group meeting we gave 13 blueberry, butterfly and Vitex bushes a new home at Linkhorn beside our two brand new garden beds. The students were eager and willing to dig in the dirt. I have always heard that kids like using tools but this meeting proved it for this group.

Stay tuned for even more expansion plans for our garden area. It truly is a gift to be able to integrate plants and gardens into our schools. Not only is there much to learn from growing plants in so many different fields of study, but studies show that working outside and with the earth is calming and grounding for kids...for all of us!

Thank you Farmer John for helping us add this new facet to our garden area. Can’t you already smell the blueberry cobbler?! Visit the garden to see our work in progress and our beautiful Fall greens.
