Photographs below are from Ms. LaRose's project. A big thank you to Recycle Rhonda from CSWD (Chittenden Solid Waste District) who will be coming in during each session to help Ms. LaRose teach students about vermicomposting. Additionally, CSWD is providing PPS with all the materials needed to start vermicomposting in each 2nd grade classroom!

On Wednesday the wonderful Mr. MacAuley came in to help us transplant our eggplant. Students learned that the eggplant needed to be moved to larger containers so they would have more room to grow. We also learned what is in the new soil that the eggplants are planted in (food, dirt, branches and nutrients). We can now have our eggplant outside during the day, however we have to make sure that the eggplant doesn’t get sunburned (yes, plants can get a sunburn) so we aren’t putting them in direct sunlight. At the end of the day we take the plants inside. Mr. MacAuley will be back in a few weeks to help us turn the soil over in our garden and then again during our PBL weeks to help us plant our vegetables in the garden.
