Direct Seeding Cold Season Crops

Throughout the day, groups of 4 students came out to the garden boxes to plant them up with cold season crops – they choose from greens, peas, radish, arugula, carrot etc. Catriona demonstrated planting technique, how deep, how much spacing and most importantly how to label the rows, then the students planted their crops.

This year at Queen Elizabeth School, each class involved in the garden program gets their own garden box, and eagerly come out to check on their garden’s progress throughout the year.

It has been cold, so crops have been slow, but they are now taken off, and the harvest party in June is looking good!
