Partnership with UD Master Gardeners club
Throughout the spring and summer the ELC’s preschool children and teachers formed a partnership with the UD Master Gardeners club. The partnership included weekly visits to a demonstration garden where children enjoyed hands-on interaction with composting, pollination and cultivation. Children and staff also planted their own classroom gardens on the ELC playground area. They cultivated and harvested a variety of vegetables. They used some of the vegtables to try new recipes in the classroom and shared some with the local food bank and ELC families. Read more about it in the UDaily article.
