Great Volunteers

Ms. Davis' class from Pendleton High School
Today a group of Pendleton High School students came to volunteer in the Garden.  They were so enthusiastic and helpful.  They planted ornamental plants in the Kindergarten Garden (sensory garden) and the Second Grade Garden (butterflies & insect life cycles) - in preparation for grandparents day.  We planted rather sad looking kale, collards and basil.  It was so much fun to share the fragrance of basil and rosemary with the kids.  We also had the joy of seeing a monarch caterpillar and talk about the long journey this small creature will make to Mexico in a few weeks!  It was all so much fun.
