Several Pre-school teachers over at Uptown Harlem Gems sites are showing off their green thumbs by creating their very own mini herb and vegetable garden! The container garden is housed in the sunny entryway and is presently growing some lovely basil, mint, lettuce, tomatoes and several other plants that the teachers plan to use eventually in some cooking demonstrations with the students. What a great idea and a great reminder that you don't need a lot of space to grow some really fun and productive plants! Way to go Mr. C and Ms. Swearing!
P.S. Do you have a garden in your classroom or at your site? If so, be sure to let us know so we can share your story with the rest of the HCZ community.
