Kids + Dirt = Fun

Wow, this weekend was very busy indeed!  A lot of time was spent out doors, which is nice since the weather was beautiful.  Saturday morning was spent at the school on a little project that has been brewing for a few years now. is finally done.
As we left our yard, pushing our wheel barrow filled with tools, we could hear the banging from the dump truck as it left a load of soil on the school field.  We were right on time!  
People were sorted into groups....some constructed the planting beds while others measured and cleared sod.  And the kids wanted to help too, which was nice.
It all came together much quicker than we had thought it might, and the weather cooperated perfectly!
We even had extra soil..... You can never have too much dirt!  Soon the classes will be out planting their little crops.  The kids that showed up that morning to help got to plant up some flowers...............................
and a rhubarb plant too.  We finished up just in time ..........we could hear thunder in the distance as we pushed our wheel barrow home.  Hope your weekend was enjoyable:)

what a terrific project! The kids will love it...especially once things get growing.

I can't think of a better project - every school should have a garden.

Thanks! We are pretty excited about the possibilities of the project and a little worried about problems we may encounter. Time will tell, and we are hopeful that there is value in it and that it will be enjoyed.
