Redwood Trees and more

JYC parent Hwee-See Teng donated three redwood tree saplings to the JYC Garden. Remembering how tall the redwood trees are in Muir Woods, students were interested to see how small they are at the beginning.

They enjoyed spreading mulch over the soil.

We'll never see these trees grow to hundreds of feet tall, but we can enjoy caring for them while they get their start.

The Garden Club has expanded this year. Now first and second graders also visit the garden every other Thursday during their lunch recess. The younger children have been very enthusiastic and helpful. Here they are learning about snap peas, one of our favorite vegetables in the garden. 

What else is growing in the garden?
