Today we had a scavenger hunt in the nature area. Students searched for producers, consumers, and decomposers as well as constructing a food web of our area.

In other news, today marked the first harvest for the school garden, "Crops-in-Groton". In today's lunch line, our home-grown Romaine Lettuce was featured in the salad bar. Come September, we will have a variety of crops including broccoli, summer squash, beans, and carrots.

How incredibly neat it that? I wish I'd known. I would have bought a salad. Thanks for giving us such wonderfully good food!

Are people going to come to the school throughout the summer and tend the garden?

Yes, there is a summer work group of middle and high school students that will tend the garden and maintain the nature trails. Everything will be lookin' good when we return in September.
