SPOTLIGHT ON SAGE GARDEN

by. Ms. Wendy Cox, Garden Educator

April Garden Lessons: For April we are learning how to tell when something in the garden is ready to harvest. We are also harvesting some of the following crops:

Mayan jaguar lettuce
Sugar snap peas
Purple peacock broccoli

In addition, some of the radish that we purposefully left in the garden have started to bolt and flower. Those flowers are edible and we are tasting those as well. A couple golden beets are starting to peek up from the soil, and we’re hoping those will be ready by the end of the month!
 

Follow Safety and Traffic Guidelines!

Our community has noticed an increase in unsafe traffic practices. Please ensure you are NOT-

  • Stopping in the middle of the intersection to drop off/ pick up students.
  • Making U-turns in the middle of the street.
  • Blocking neighbors driveways. 
  • Blocking the lane by pulling aside another car to chat.
