This November was the fourth year the first graders from St. Andrew’s School on Whitemarsh Island toured the Farm to gather information to bring back to their own gardening projects at school. The children garden in raised beds at school, a part of the curriculum. Nice! Future Gardeners.
A big thank you to Jane Kollman and Carol Stiles for all the work they do at the garden with the children’s programs. They are helping to establish in many a lifelong love of gardening!
