We welcomed our new preppies in Week 2 in Kitchen Garden and began with a tour of the garden and kitchen area. Our new preppies learnt the rules of Kitchen Garden and held their noses as they entered the “stinky” garden shed.
We were very blessed to have so many parent helpers join us this week. The children really love having their Mum or Dad in the garden. We finished the lesson by learning our Kitchen Garden Grace and then we got to pull some serious weeds in the pineapple patch.
Year 2s were put straight to work in the garden. The pineapple patch was weeded and many of the old plants removed, garden beds were weeded and 2M and 2G planted out two adopt-a-garden beds; one by the car park and our flag pole garden which should burst into bloom in the coming weeks.
Year 2 Masterchef’s whipped up a delicious sweet potato, bean and soft cheese salad which looked and tasted amazing! The chef’s looked very professional in their brand new aprons which were made during the holidays.
