This month we installed a regenerative, no-till school garden at Godfrey Early Childhood Center in Wyoming. We were greeted with sunshine as we engaged in the process of covering the ground with cardboard, paper, leaves, and mulch. Soon a blanket of snow will cover the layers causing them to break down and create a rich soil that contains a vibrant, living ecosystem. In the spring, this garden bed will be ready for children’s happy, eager, hands to plant in.
School gardens are such a good thing! I’m hopeful they will sprout up in every school.
