Rock the Earth – Vegetable Planting

The students who participated in our school event Rock the Earth Sock Hop, helped plant seeds for our EC vegetable garden.  First they filled a pot with soil and then chose which seeds they wanted to plant.  Seed choices included tomatoes, broccoli, cucumber, lettuce, kale, carrots, and pumpkins.  Then students watered their newly-planted seeds.  The plants were distributed among the EC classrooms, so the children have the opportunity to water the plants daily and watch them grow.  Later, the children will help transplant the starts into our garden.  During the summer camps and in the fall, the children harvest the vegetables and eat them for snack.
