At Middle Cove the garden is missing its young gardeners immensely.
The “school class” that is, students still attending the campus each day, come down to the garden every morning and keep a watchful eye on the vegetables and flowers that are growing, measuring our pumpkins, watching our bees visit their favourite flowers and plant seeds for our winter harvest. The older students have been coming down to the garden again later in the day and getting to work. They have been helping to tend the garden beds, harvesting late summer crops, erecting protective barriers to deter our wildlife visitors and enjoying the beauty of autumn in the garden. We are also doing some preparation in the garden to make way for the new outdoor garden classroom. The banana trees have had to be relocated for the short term. The children have been a great help in keeping our garden well loved and cared for. For those missing the garden, here is a video of Sandra Frain taking care of the flowers and vegetables.
