Tiger Tracks mUfsd's monthly e-news
At Murray Ave. School, gardeners have been busy bringing Murray Farms to life after winter hibernation. Students started by turning under the “green manure” they planted in the fall and spreading homemade compost made from lunchroom scraps. Next, students planted heirloom lettuce seeds for their spring salad garden, as well as peas, kale, cabbages and other nutritious greens. Third grade students are going to keep an observation log to track changes in the Salad Garden throughout the growing season — from seed to harvest and back to seed — as part of their life cycle study. The garden recess club celebrated Earth Day with a special treat — planting native shrub saplings to benefit Murray's schoolyard birds and butterflies.
Mamaroneck Ave. School's Garden Club has been busy planting lettuce, radish, carrots, herbs and tomatoes. The 2nd grade celebrated St Patrick's Day by planting peas in the MAS Community Garden for Good Luck! They also read First Peas to the Table, a book by Susan Grigsby about how Thomas Jefferson inspired a school garden. Kinder-gardeners also started planting peas on St Patrick's day and read Little Pea by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. The entire MAS school community celebrated Earth Day and Walk to School Week by cleaning up the schoolyard and planting scarlet runner beans, sunflowers and zinnias to beautify the grounds.
