Final Fall Lessons

Final Fall Lessons
Last week, GROW wrapped up our garden lessons for 2019!

During the caring work lesson students at La Crescent-Hokah Elementary school harvested dried beans, planted garlic for the spring, and then covered the freshly planted garlic with straw to provide insulation over the winter. Mrs. Riess’s 3rd grade classroom with Ms. Susan in the school garden.
