Our Garden Theme


Companion Planting Chart

The education lessons are underway! Our first topic is companion planting.  Students discover the three different ways plants support each other.

Students are planting a companion pair that will be later transplanted into the school gardens. Plant combinations include beans and peas, peas and carrots,  cucumbers and kale, nasturtiums and tomatoes, ground cherries and basil, oregano and cabbage or marigolds and lettuce.

Here is a quick chart to show a few other companion combinations by the Afristar Foundation.

NEW!  Adults and kids can create their own pot of herbs or flowers to take home or give away. Perfect Mother’s Day gift.
