Waialae Elementary Public Charter School Gardens

Jun 24, 2013

Waialae Elementary Public Charter Schools had a great Spring garden session.    Our gardens grew great, and we harvested tons of vegatables that the kids got to eat at their Year-End Harvest party.   We grew tons of lettuce, carrots, beans, radishes, basil, tomatoes, and lots of marigolds and nasturtiums too to bring pollinators to the gardens.   At the end of the school year, we held our year-end Garden Party where we harvested anything left in the beds, and the reconditioned all the beds by adding compost to the beds, and mulch all around the beds.   We then put the beds to "sleep" for the summer and will replant again when the school year begins in August.    We will be working on getting an Aquaponics system going next year, as well as getting rain collection barrels for the school to collect water to be used for watering the gardens.  


Well done guys an girls.
