Garden Grubs

This year, each Learning Community are in charge of a vegetable garden patch. 1/2 have decided to try and grow their own fruit and vegetables using seeds from students' Brain Boost snacks.
There are some vital steps that we need to take to make this successful.

We collected a range of seeds including plum, orange, apple and peach. We left them out to dry on a piece of paper for a couple of days. The students placed the seeds in individual paper envelopes so that they could breathe.

Then students placed a damp piece of paper towel with their seeds into a sealed snap lock bag. They labelled their bags.

This picture shows the seeds collected, labelled, and ready for refrigeration.

The seeds have been placed in the school fridge to simulate winter. The seeds need to be stored in a cool temperature for 70-80 days.

Children will regularly check their seeds to ensure the paper towel is damp.

Do you grow any fruit or vegetables in your garden? What do you grow?
