The Sea Turtles took their first trip to the garden last Monday. They were so excited about walking to the garden and meeting Master Gardener, Flo. While at the garden we were able to partner with Ms. Jessica’s 2nd grade. The children planted green onion seedlings together. The Sea Turtles enjoyed having the opportunity to get to work with a new group of friends.

Flo introduced the Sea Turtles to the proper way to remove carrots from the soil and protect the carrot tops. She discussed the garden norms and how to stay safe and keep others safe. We didn’t have the opportunity to taste anything growing in the garden this time, but are looking forward to trying new things during our future trips. The children also enjoyed washing the carrots they had pulled to bring to school for the Farmer’s Market on Tuesday.
