Fall Fun Flying Leaves

A great time was had by all 17 people who came out to help.  All done in an hour!
Some of the leaves had a more dramatic path than others to the piles… we literally were raking in the sunshine this day :-)

If you have a leaf trimmings bin, feel free to fill it up with the leaves stockpiled behind the benches.

Blanket for winter...

Cover crop roots keep the soil intact in the winter rains.  They put nutrients back into the soil.  And, they look good until its Spring planting season.  Thanks to the Grade 3's who came and planted winter wheat, fall rye and crimson clover.  Yellow flags mark where the different varieties were planted.  Check it out at recess!
