Kids Country Stow

This year was a focus on our six classroom gardens. Our outdoor educator, Terry, met with all the children and allowed them to choose and design the garden space. Terry helped them prepare the soil, grow the plants from seeds in our new outdoor greenhouse and held a planting event with the families. The children’s favorite activities were measuring and documenting the amount of water in the rain gauges, measuring their watermelons, and documenting their growth from week to week.

We were able to hatch new 12 chickens to add to our existing flock, collect eggs and give them to our families. The most rewarding experience was a parent bringing us an abandoned duck egg. We put it in our incubator and successfully hatched Quackers, it was truly amazing. We added an additional two ducks to create our own KC duck family.
