The students of Mother Rasakeli and Mother Savitri’s classes, Pre-k through 2nd grades, learned how to plant marigolds this week. Instructed by Shalagram Prabhu, Kalachandji Community Garden organizer, the students learned how to make a string grid to allow proper spacing for the plants. They also learned how separate the plants and how deep they should go into the soil.
The best part of the instruction for the kids? Discovering the large, wriggling worms in the earth and how beneficial they are to plant and soil health.
