Garden Center Visits Doherty
Doherty pre-kindergarten for 2-year-old students learned about gardening thanks to a visit from Ellie Falk, youth education coordinator for the Civic Garden Center. Falk led the students in planting cover crop seeds in the gardens at Doherty, which will provide a protective layer and enhance the soil. The students also practiced their colors by hunting for leaves of the same color. They later used the leaves to make sun catchers with art teacher Kacey Watkins. “I just loved that we took what we found outside after a nature walk and created art with the leaves that we collected,” said pre-kindergarten for 2-year-old teacher Julie Brackett.
