The planting event in Clover Elementary School is helping students to build their school native garden. Some classmates and I decided to be volunteers and participate in this activity together. On Thursday May 16th I arrived at the school around 9:30 in the morning with 3 hours huge traffic. Since I was arriving late, the student in charge of Gabrielle still being patient to explain the process to me. After she explains everything, I got an idea what I supposed to do today. Firstly, we need to weed the garden. Secondly, we have to breaking up dirt clumps. Then, we should grading and spreading compost. The area we need to plant is not that large, and it also located in front of two the fifth grade classroom. With the gardening gloves, grab the shovel and rake, then I start to working on it. While we weeding the garden, children were very curious what we do on the garden and keep asking questions to their teacher. The teacher was explaining to all the children what we did and what will happen for the garden. It makes children so exciting. After weed the garden, I used the shovel and rake to breaking up dirt clumps. While compost truck arrived, we need to spread compost evenly over the planting area. We reacted to the cow manure smell. After the compost was dispensed, a truck-full of mulch arrived. And we do the same thing again. During the time to planting here, children were taking the P.E, dance classes. With the music of their class, it makes us more enjoy to working with them. I felt very glad that I be a volunteer here today. Because of school garden get students thinking about what plant around them and to get the students outside. Although most of what is done in the garden relates to the environment, it can also serve as an outdoor classroom for teaching. School gardens can be used to enhance academic achievement, promote healthy lifestyles, inspire environmental stewardship, and to build communities.
