TCDS Garden: The Winter Harvest is Here!


 

Garden Club members as well as students during the day have been busy tending to the school’s garden, and we’re excited to say the winter harvest is here!

Students had fun picking many vegetables such as carrots and lettuce. They enjoyed the first tastes of their hard work in the garden.

Students are also continuing the work in the garden, tending to the compost and the vegetables and keeping the garden fresh and growing.

The students were so productive in the garden that they got to take fixings for salad home to share with family.
