Super students! Thetford Elementary’s school gardens are put to bed and their new five-bin compost facility is up and running. This latest installation completes the food cycle: the compost created from cafeteria food waste will go back to the school gardens to grow more food for the cafeteria. The gardens are managed by kindergarten, first and second grade students; the fourth and fifth grade students manage the compost. Cat helps to coordinate and plan the management of the food cycle.
Field notes Our garlic is planted and the potatoes are all in. Between snowfalls we harvested a fair sunflower crop and hope to press the oil in the coming weeks. The nine varieties of dry beans are harvested and are waiting to be threshed and winnowed. We’ll let you know when the beans and oil are ready for sale!
