Friday was a busy garden day for our students here at Open Door Arlington Hills. Paul’s class, with the help of our volunteer Coral, began with planting tomato seedlings into large pots. These pots will make up our container garden in the courtyard. Here the seedlings can soak up the sun and grow tall!
Mary’s Job Club then had the task of planting in both the North and South gardens. Students planted jalapeno peppers and eggplant in the South garden while another group put in okra and collard green seedlings in the North. All in all, busy day of planting! Hopefully they’ll get lots of sunshine (and maybe a little rain) over the long weekend.
Happy Memorial Day!
